Randy Quaid and his wife have failed to appear for an arraignment in their felony vandalism case in California.

The couple did not appear in a Santa Barbara court Tuesday morning and the Quaids' attorney said the actor was required to stay in Canada until he can appear for an immigration hearing there Nov. 8.

A judge issued a bench warrant for Evi Quaid after determining that she did not have a good reason to miss Tuesday's hearing. Randy Quaid is due back in court Nov. 16.

Each faces a felony vandalism charge after their September arrest for allegedly squatting in the guest house of a home they used to own.

They have said they are seeking asylum in Canada, claiming they fear a group they have described as "Hollywood star whackers."
