LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The couple had missed several previous hearing dates. A judge set bail at $100,000 for each. The Quaids were handcuffed, taken from court and escorted by sheriff's deputies for booking.
Quaid and his wife spent about four hours in jail when the judge gave them each $20,000 credit each for a previous bond. Both Quaid and his wife posted bail and were then free to go. They have another hearing this week.
The couple were originally arrested last year in Presidio County, Texas. Both are accused of skipping out on a $10,000 hotel bill in Santa Barbara. Each faces felony charges of burglary, defrauding an innkeeper and conspiracy.
Fifty-six-year-old actor Quaid is best known for his roles in movies where he is cast as a lovable, but gruff redneck. His most memorable roles include all of the "National Lampoon's Vacation" movies, "Kingpin" and "Brokeback Mountain."
