Randy Quaid appeared bearded and unkempt before the Immigration and Refugee Board in Montreal today as he was released from jail.

The former actor was arrested last week on an outstanding warrant from January 2013 following an investigation by Canada Border Services Agency and the Montreal police that determined he had not been meeting the conditions necessary to stay in the country.

The troubled actor fled to the country in 2010, he is wanted on several charges in the US and has previously claimed he is at risk from a conspiracy to kill Hollywood stars.

He was allowed released on $10,000 bond, which was paid by his Canadian father-in-law.

According to CBC News, one of the terms of Quaid’s release is letting Canadian officials know of his whereabouts.

When asked why he missed his scheduled meeting in January 2013, Quaid said he had ‘lost faith in the system.’

He then told the court; ‘At this point, I desire nothing more than to fully co-operate with any restrictions or conditions, as long as I could be with my wife, even if that means going back to the States to reapply for permanent residency status in Canada.’

He is still however under a removal order from the country, and they can order the actor to leave at any time.

Quaid fled to Canada in 2010 with his wife Evi, who is a citizen of the country, after a string of troubling events.

The couple’s controversies started in 2008, when Quaid was banned from the Actor’s Equity union for life and fined $81,572 after a stage production of Lone Star Love in Seattle.

According to statements filed by the cast and crew, Quaid’s physically and verbally abused his fellow performers, forcing the show to close.

Four members of the union then filed restraining orders against Evi, Quaid’s wife of 25 years, after an altercation the next day.

In 2010, the Quaids were arrested and charged with vandalism and residential burglary – both felonies – after being found living illegally in the guest house of a Montecito, California property they once owned.

They had allegedly caused thousands of dollars of damage, including breaking a $7,000 mirror and replacing it with a photograph of themselves.

The couple claimed ‘they had owned the property since the 1990s’ but were arrested and given court dates.

However, the pair jumped bail, skipped court, and relocated north of the U.S. border.

Quaid and Evi recently uploaded a video to YouTube this March in which he told viewers he ‘helped media giants News Corp and Warner Bros Entertainment earn well over a billion dollars for the films Independence Day and Christmas Vacation’.

But, he said, ‘Evi and I have been put through a living hell. A living hell of biblical proportions.’

He accused Warner Bros Entertainment of conspiring with news outlet TMZ and the police to have him and his wife arrested six times, adding: ‘Hash tag PMC: Police Media Corruption.’

Also targeted was Warners Bros financial partner Bruce Berman, whom he accused of stealing their house.

And News Corporation, headed by Rupert Murdoch, ‘continues to smear me to high heaven with a pack of lies’ in the New York Post, he said.

Finally, in a bizarre conclusion, Quaid mused: ‘So how do we retaliate? Well, I still have a few tricks too.’

He opened his blazer to show a Hawaiian shirt: ‘This is the very same shirt that I wore in ’94 when I saved the world [in Independence Day] – another act that Rupert Murdoch still hasn’t thanked me for.

‘So Rupert, you wanna f*** me? I’m gonna f*** you. Evi, put this on.’

Evi then bent over the camera as Quaid stood behind her appearaing to have sexual intercourse.

Laughing over her shoulder, Quaid shouted ‘Together Rupert!’ repeatedly before screaming his Independence Day catchphrase: ‘I’M BAAACK!’

$500,000 bench warrants are still in effect for the couple in Santa Barbara.

The Quaids also told authorities previously that their friends including Heath Ledger and David Carradine had died under ‘mysterious circumstances’ and were in fact killed by the Star Whackers sect.

They are also suing US Secretary of State John Kerry to recover their passports which were revoked three years ago after they failed to appear in court for charges of vandalism, fleeing to Canada instead.

Quaid is the older brother of actor Dennis Quaid and best-known for his roles in films such as National Lampoon’s Vacation and Independence Day.

He won a Golden Globe award – which he brought to court during one of his appearances in the innkeeper case – for his depiction of President Lyndon Johnson in a TV movie in the late 1980s.

He was also nominated for a best supporting actor Oscar in 1973 for his role in The Last Detail.

Quaid has a 31-year-old daughter, Amanda Quaid, with his first wife, Ella Marie Jolly, whom he divorced in August 1989.

He married Evi six weeks later and they have no children together.
