Five years after fleeing to Canada while facing felony vandalism charges in California, actor Randy Quaid is back in the United States and in custody. The 65-year-old star of "Kingpin" and "Independence Day" was arrested along with his wife, Evi, on Friday as they were trying to cross from Quebec into Vermont, authorities said. The couple sought asylum in Canada in 2010 because they feared "Hollywood star whackers" were after them. While Evi Quaid was granted Canadian citizenship because her father was born in Canada, Randy Quaid's request for permanent residency was denied in 2013 and he was expected to be deported this month.
