Santa Barbara - Actor Randy Quaid and his wife are in trouble again. This time, they have been charged with illegally occupying their former home in California.
The couple was charged with felony residential burglary and entering a noncommercial building without consent. Randy Quaid's wife, Evi, has also been charged with resisting arrest.
They are accused of causing more than $5,000 in damage in the guest home, according to The Associated Press.
The people who own the Santa Barbara property contacted police about squatters in their house, but the Quaids claimed it still belonged to them.
The owners were able to show authorities documents indicating that they had bought the house in 2007, from a man who had purchased it from the Quaids several years before that.
Bail for the 59-year-old actor and his wife was set at $50,000 each (£31,990) each.
Last year the Quaids had been charged for using an invalid credit card to pay a hotel bill of $10,000 (£6,400). Evi Quaid was given three years probation and community service and charges were dropped against her husband.
Quaid is known for his roles in Brokeback Mountain and National Lampoon's Vacation. He won a Golden Globe award for playing President Lyndon Johnson in LBJ: The Early Years.
