Randy Quaid, the actor and brother of Dennis Quaid, is expected to be arraigned on Monday in a Vermont courthouse after being deported from Canada.

According to CNN, Quaid and his wife, Evi, were charged in 2010 with felony vandalism, allegedly carried out at a property they used to own in Santa Barbara, California. The couple failed to appear in court, however, and fled to Canada.

Canada granted the couple permission to stay, and granted Evi citizenship because her father was born in the country. Randy's application for permanent citizenship was denied in 2013, however.

Last week, Quaid was detained by Canadian border authorities during a regular appointment. He appears to have been released since then, as he and Evi appear to have attempted an independent border crossing ahead of Quaid's scheduled deportation on Wednesday.

During the crossing, they were detained by troopers in Vermont. Both were labeled fugitives by U.S. Customs officials at the Highgate Port Of Entry, and taken to separate correctional facilities. Bail was set at $500,000 for each of them.

CBC News reported that Quaid could receive a fugitive from justice charge in court on Monday.

During a 2010 hearing in Canada, he told the court that "Hollywood star whackers" were after him, and that they'd previously murdered eight fellow actors, including Heath Ledger and David Carradine.

Elsewhere, Quaid has said the whole thing is "a property dispute. This should not be a criminal dispute at all."
