Randy Quaid and his wife, Evi, are in jail in Santa Barbara after finally showing up for a hearing in the felony case against them. The actor and his wife, who allegedly skipped out on a $10,000 hotel tab, are being held on $100,000 bond. "The judge said they showed disrespect by prior failures to appear and by flashing Randy's Golden Globe award in court the last time around," the DA tells People. "They both apologized to the court, but the judge obviously didn't take it lightly."
