SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) - California prosecutors say they will seek the extradition of Randy Quaid and wife Evi after the couple were no-shows for a felony court hearing.

The Quaids were due in court in Santa Barbara, Calif., on Thursday afternoon to answer to felony charges that they defrauded an innkeeper. They have been given multiple chances to appear in court but never have.

Senior Deputy District Attorney Lee Carter says an arrest warrant remains active. He says his office will also seek the Quaids' extradition from Texas, where they were arrested last month.

Felony charges were filed after a resort complained the couple used an invalid credit card and racked up a bill of more than $10,000.

Randy Quaid's film credits include "Independence Day" and "Kingpin."
