Arrest Warrant Dropped for Quaids

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) - An arrest warrant has been dropped for actor Randy Quaid and his wife, Evi, who are accused of stiffing a Santa Barbara County hotel on a $10,000 bill.

A county prosecutor, Lee Carter, says the warrant was recalled after the Quaids posted bail of $20,000 each last week. The warrant was issued after the Quaids failed to show up for three court appearances last month.

They were arrested on Sept. 24 in West Texas. Authorities plan to extradite them to California, where they're accused of using an invalid credit card in June to defraud the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito. They must appear for arraignment in Santa Barbara on Dec. 15.

A call to an attorney believed to be representing the Quaids was not immediately returned Tuesday.
