For the second time this year, Hollywood actor Randy Quaid has been arrested by the Canadian Border Services Agency Agents. Reportedly, Quaid was detained Tuesday morning after attending a regular check-in with CBSA officials in downtown Montreal. While reasons for Quaid’s arrest are still unclear, his detention hearing with the Immigration and Refugee Board will be held this afternoon.
Quaid had originally applied for Canadian refugee status in 2010, claiming he and his wife were targets of “Hollywood star-whackers” maniacs who were bent on killing celebrities. Later, he withdrew his refugee claim and submitted an application to gain permanent residence status but was denied in 2013 due to a past criminal conviction. After missing an appointment for an IRB interview the same year, Quaid disappeared from the eyes of the Canadian Government causing a warrant for his arrest and orders for his deportation to be issued. Quaid was only found and arrested in April of 2015, where shortly after his father-in-law posted a $10,000 bond and he was freed with conditions.
Though Quaid’s wife Evi was granted citizenship in 2012, Quaid is still technically under removal orders from the Canadian government and could be asked to leave at any time. According to his wife, Quaid kept to the conditions given to him after the IRB ruling in April leaving many to wonder what happened to cause for his arrest now.
Over Quaid’s career he’s appeared in a numerous amount of films including, Brokeback Mountain, The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, Midnight Express, National Lampoon’s Vacation, and The Last Picture Show. He was previously nominated for an Oscar for his role in 1973’s “The Last Detail,” and won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of President Lyndon Baines Johnson in a TV movie in the late 80s. Randy is the brother Denis Quaid, another prominent actor in Hollywood.
