Randy and Evi Quaid at the Diving Bell and the Butterfly premiere

Randy Quaid and his wife Evi Quaid have been taken into custody by authorities, reports the New York Daily News. This comes on the heels of their arrest in Canada on Tuesday (Oct. 6), which is Quaid’s second arrest in Canada in 2015.

Law enforcement officials in Vermont tell the site that the actor and his wife were attempting to cross into the United States from Canada and were detained by Vermont state troopers. A judge set ail at $500,000 apiece.

Quaid is wanted in Santa Barbara, Calif., to face felony vandalism charges from 2010 when the pair were found living in a guesthouse of a house they previously owned. Santa Barbara district attorney Lee Carter tells the Daily News that the Quaids will also face felony charges for their failures to appear in court.

The pair did not appear at several court appearances and went to Canada, where Evi was granted citizenship; Randy’s petition for citizenship was denied.

Quaid has said for years that he and Evi are being hunted by Hollywood “star-whackers,” assassins responsible for the deaths of David Carradine and Heath Ledger, which is supposedly why the couple fled to Canada.
