Bounty Hunter Chapman Gives Fugitive Quaid Final Ultimatum
Bounty hunter DUANE 'DOG' Chapman issued a public ultimatum to fugitive actor Randy Quaid on Thursday night (21Oct10) - urging him to turn himself into police or face capture by the TV tough guy.
A California judge issued warrants for the arrests of Quaid and his wife Evi after they failed to show up for arraignment on a felony vandalism charge in a Santa Barbara courthouse on Monday (18Oct10).
The Quaids were arrested last month (Sep10) for allegedly squatting in a Montecito home they once owned and were released on $50,000 (£33,330) bail after spending the night behind bars.
The Dog The Bounty Hunter star appeared on comedian George Lopez's U.S. late night show Lopez Tonight on Thursday, and called out the couple for fleeing justice.
He said: "I hope Randy Quaid and his wife are watching right now because on the (wanted criminals) list, this morning, they just popped up. We're announcing he has the chance to call authorities and turn himself in - and at least do it for your wife and for how you were raised. If not, the Chapman family is coming after you."
Chapman also expressed his desire to hold an intervention with Quaid, amid concerns his life has spiralled out of control.
He added: "There's something going on in his life. You know him and I know him too. He's not the same guy, so we need to do an intervention, Dog style."
The Quaids' next court hearing is scheduled for 26 October (10).
