SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (CBS/AP) Randy and Evi Quaid have been keeping busy coordinating court appearances, logging community service, and rewriting their growing rap sheets.

So busy in fact that the couple most recently charged with "felony vandalism exceeding $400 and a misdemeanor of unauthorized entry of a dwelling house" failed to show up for their arraignment Monday in Santa Barbara.

So now the Quaids also have warrants out for their arrest.

Senior Deputy District Attorney Lee Carter says Randy and Evi's case will be called again on Oct. 26.

In addition to the alleged house crashing, Evi Quaid, 47, also faces a second misdemeanor for resisting or obstructing a peace officer or EMT, reports RadarOnline.

Randy and Evi Quaid were arrested last month after the current owner of the Quaids' old home reported that they had been living in his guest house without his permission, but the Quaids insisted that they had owned the property since the 1990s.

The Quaids frequently missed court appearances in an earlier case involving charges they defrauded an innkeeper. That case was resolved in April with Evi Quaid pleading no contest to a misdemeanor count. The charges against her husband were dropped.

Randy Quaid, 60, is best-known for supporting roles in films such as "Independence Day" and "National Lampoon's Vacation." He is the older brother of actor Dennis Quaid.
