American actor detained: Randy Quaid Arrested, Randy Quaid has been arrested in Canada – again. The reason for Quaid’s arrest is not immediately clear. However, his wife, Evi Quaid, said her husband was detained Tuesday morning by Canada Border Service officials in Montreal for a routine check-in, reports the Associated Press.

Immigration and Refugee Board spokesman Robert Gervais confirmed Quaid’s arrest to the Associated Press and said a detention review hearing has been scheduled for Thursday.

Evi, 52, took to Twitter to express her frustration over her husband’s arrest.

“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,” she wrote.

She also posted two YouTube videos in which she blames President Obama and the State Department for the warrants out for the couple.

Quaid, 65, appears in the background of the video sporting a long grey beard and wearing a black shirt and sweatpants. As Evi speaks, Quaid is seen waving his arms around and sitting on a bench drinking champagne.

The description for the videos says it was posted after Quaid was “illegally arrested again ON OCT 2015.”

According to the Associated Press, officials were unable to provide any additional information.

Quaid was denied permanent residency in Canada in 2012 after the couple fled the United States in 2010, claiming they were victims of unjust persecution.

The couple have faced a string of legal problems in recent years, and in 2010 they failed several times to appear in court for a felony vandalism arraignment.

They have also been accused of skipping out on hotel bills and squatting in a Montecito, California, home they previously owned.

They also claim they have been running for their lives from Hollywood “star whackers” who seek to have celebrities killed to take their fortunes.

Randy Quaid is the older brother of actor Dennis Quaid.

“I love my brother,” Dennis told PEOPLE when asked about Randy’s legal troubles in 2011. “That’s all I can say. I love my brother and I miss my brother. That’s all I’m going to say.”
