The Quaids were detained at the Highgate Port of Entry and apprehended. The two were high-profile fugitives in a Santa Barbara, California, case in which it is alleged that the couple illegally squatted in a residence they used to own. In 2010, they applied for asylum in Canada on the grounds that a group called the "Hollywood Star Whackers" wanted to kill them.
The couple claimed in interviews that the mysterious group was responsible for the deaths of David Carradine and Heath Ledger, and was also trying to manipulate the lives of Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan.
