INDIANAPOLIS – Actor Randy Quaid has sued an Indianapolis bond company that bailed Quaid and his wife out of jail after they were arrested on squatting charges in California in 2010.
The Indianapolis Star reports the 63-year-old Independence Day star sued American Surety in Hamilton County Court, saying the company posted two $50,000 bonds for the couple without being asked, obligating them to repay bonds that they hadn’t requested.
American Surety posted two $50,000 bonds for the couple, but the Quaids contend in an April 10 Indiana court filing that they never authorized the company to issue the bonds.
The Quaids did not enter into a written agreement with American or its agent to provide the $50,000 bonds and did not agree to pay any sums to American or its agent in exchange for the bonds, their attorney wrote in court documents.
The couple are seeking unspecified damages for lost wages and emotional distress.
