Actor and crazy man you and Randy Quaid can’t seem to escape legal issues even north of the border. The Independence Day star has just been detained in Canada by immigration officials and it could lead to his deportation.
Quaid was picked up in Montréal where he lives with his wife Evi. It appears Evi was involved in the incident as well, she tweeted, “I love that Canada needs to learn how to wake up and criticize its crappy government … ps we got arrested by an actual tall midget.”
It’s unclear why Quaid was detained, but an immigration official has said Quaid will have a detention review hearing on Thursday.
A law enforcement source in Santa Barbara — where Quaid has several warrants out for his arrest went on record saying that they’ll pick him up once he’s brought back to the US.
The couple has been in Canada for years after legal troubles in the US, reportedly living in Montreal since January 2013.
