Quaids Seek Refugee Status in Canada

Two of Marfa's most famous residents are making headlines, yet again. Actor Randy Quaid, and his wife Evi, are now both wanted in California on vandalism charges.

The pair was arrested in Canada this week and now they want refugee status because they say they "fear for their lives."

Evi Quaid claims that eight of her husband's acting friends were murdered in recent years and they're worried they could be next.

You may remember, the Quaids were arrested by the Presidio County Sheriff's Office last year at their home in Marfa after being accused of not paying a hotel bill in Santa Barbara.

The couple is free on bond until another hearing on Thursday.
