The saga of former Big Brother contestant Matt McDonald has gone from bad, to worse, to practically unbelievable in the span of about 72 hours.

Matt was arrested for beating his pregnant girlfriend last weekend, but reached a new low - we thought - by harassing her to drop the charges.

By phone, from behind bars!

Dude now faces the additional, serious charge of witness intimidation ... but oh, if only that were it for ol' Matty today. He's got far worse issues.

While investigating Matt for the above incident(s), authorities tied him to a conspiracy to distribute oxycodone ... with a former Big Brother co-star.

These Big Brother bums are headed to the big house.

Adam Jasinski, if you recall, won Season 9, and was indicted in federal court in Massachusetts last year for starting drug ring with the winnings.

Now, according to a new indictment, Matt McDonald was involved in the alleged drug ring run by Adam Jasinski from April 2008 to October 2009.

McDonald and Jasinski were allies inside the Big Brother house ... and apparently after, after Adam pooled his $500,000 prize into mucho drugs.

If convicted of the drug charge, McDonald faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine. Jasinski? Probably even more than that. Wow.

It had been too long since we'd heard from Randy Quaid and his insane wife Evi - though if they keep these antics up, we may never hear from them again.

The Quaids pressed their luck with a Santa Barbara, Calif., court, and when you fight the law, the law usually wins. Especially if you're wanted as fugitives.

The eccentric pair was thrown in the slammer Monday by Superior Court Judge Frank Ochoa for missing not one, but several hearings in their felony case.

"They came to court this morning hoping that Judge Ochoa would forgive them for not showing up a few weeks ago, but the judge decided they showed disrespect by prior failures to appear," Santa Barbara D.A. Arnie Tolks said.

Randy and Evi Quaid posted bail of $100,000 each and left after three hours.

The D.A. also said that Randy flashing his Golden Globe from the 1988 miniseries LBJ: The Early Years during his last court date did not go over well:

"They both apologized to the court, but the judge didn't take it lightly."

The pair originally were arrested in Marfa, Texas, in September after allegedly skipping out on a $10,000 bill at the exclusive San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara.

Although they have since paid their outstanding bill, prosecutors say a crime was still committed ... and they've been pretty difficult to pin down in the process.

In fact, Randy and Evi Quaid were facing extradition for a time ... this over an unpaid bill. She has also been involved in numerous unrelated run-ins with cops.

Real normal.

Matt McDonald, a memorable contestant from Season 9 of the hit CBS reality series Big Brother, was arrested for allegedly beating his pregnant girlfriend.

The Boston District Attorney's Office says Matt McDonald was taken into custody Sunday around 3:30 p.m. after an ugly spat over allegations of infidelity.

The self-proclaimed "biggest liar/sweet talker" on the show was charged with assault and battery and aggravated assault and battery ... a serious charge.

This is because the victim is eight weeks pregnant.

According to the police, Matt and his baby mama got into an argument "over a text message on her cell phone the victim received from an old friend."

At that point, "the suspect accused the victim of cheating on her, attacking the victim by grabbing her arms, dragging her into a different room and strangling the victim stating 'I hope the baby dies and hope u [sic] have a miscarriage." Wow.

BIG (BROTHER) HOUSE: Matt McDonald could be sequestered for awhile.

The next day, the woman alleges, the former Big Brother houseguest returned from the store and accused her of pouring water on his plasma TV, breaking it.

McDonald then kicked her in the collarbone while she was sitting, then put her in a headlock and punched her in the arms, per the report. And it gets worse.

The victim claimed he later phoned her father, at which point she screamed for help, prompting Matt to shout, "Shut the f--k up or I'll punch you in the face."

She also contends McDonald threatened to off her dad if he called the cops.

It was then she ran out of the apartment and sought out police, who observed bruises and red marks on her collarbone, neck and arms, according to reports.

McDonald has pleaded not guilty. Interesting side note - that season of BB was won by Adam Jasinski, who was recently busted for running a drug ring.

Gretchen Rossi was almost placed in handcuffs yesterday, but not for the reasons this dirty Real Housewife probably would like.

After failing Rossi failed show up for a court appearance on Thursday, a judge issued a bench warrant for her arrest. However, he held it for a week and ordered the reality star to show up on Thursday, April 29.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

From what does this mess stem? Rossi was scheduled to be in court for a debtor examination related to money she owes ex-boyfriend Jay Photoglou. The cash results from a lawsuit she filed against him that was thrown out.

Since then, Photoglou has sued the Real Housewife of Orange County for slander.

A judge awarded Jay $18,900 and Photoglou wants to collect.

“A lawyer from the firm Gretchen hired showed up in court and asked for a continuance because Gretchen’s lawyer was unavailable,” said Jay’s lawyer, Orlando Castano Jr. “Gretchen didn’t show up and the judge then issued a bench warrant for her arrest, holding it to give them the opportunity for her to come to court. She must show up next Thursday at 8:30 a.m.”

VARSITY AND JV TRAIN WRECKS: Lindsay and Ali Lohan are inseparable lately. This has their dad, Michael, worried for the 16-year-old's safety. [Photos: Fame]

Michael made a "compelling case" to Sheriff's deputies, saying Ali was in Lindsay's car on the way back from Coachella and the car was going over 100 mph.

Not everyone is moved by his efforts, however. The girls' mom and Lindsay's chief enabler, Dina, wants Lindsay to get a restraining order against Michael. 

With the legitimacy of the Sheriff's Dept. backing him this time, it's unlikely it would stick. Still, Dina Lohan vows that "My ex could be in big trouble. He's dangerous."

"If he can't get to them he is going to try to hurt them. It's not good."

Speaking with celeb gossip outlet TMZ after the incident, Michael steadfastly vowed to stay the course until Lindsay checks into rehab for substance abuse.

Michael says he will not leave L.A. "until Ali is removed from Lindsay's home and has a normal life of a 16-year-old. Anywhere Lindsay goes, I'm bringing cops."

The plot thickens! Should Linds heed her concerned dad's warnings and get help, or should that jerk just butt out? Whose side are you on?

Earlier today, we reported that a pair of women have stepped up and added their names to the lawsuit Kayden Nguyen has filed against Steven Seagal.

We can now identify one of these females as Blair Robinson, the granddaughter of legendary singer Ray Charles.

According to TMZ, Robinson first met Seagal at her Charles' funeral in 2004. Innocent enough, right? It gets a lot shadier from there...

Following the funeral, Robinson claims she was invited to the actor's residence to discuss a job opportunity. Too bad she didn't have Kayden Nguyen to warn her about what might happen next.

In her sworn declaration, Blair says she accepted an offer as Seagal's assistant. On her very first day of work, the actor reportedly came to her room; said she was required to give him massages; and then offered to teach her the proper method for these acts.

"It became clear to me that he wanted and expected sexual favors as part of my job duties," Blair alleges in the documents, adding that she quit after the first day.

Seagal's attorney denies these claims. But if any of these allegations are true, Steven Seagal: Lawman becomes an even more misleading show than Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Heather Locklear was arrested for hit-and-run Saturday, according to TMZ, following a crash near North Ranch Country Club in Westlake Village, Calif.

Deputies went to look at the area and found a knocked over "no parking" sign and obvious signs that a car that went up the curb, drilling the sign.

The police confirmed through investigation that the car in question was Locklear's black BMW, and the collision was very close to Heather's home.

Officials then went to Locklear's home, saw damage to the BMW consistent with the collision, and arrested the 48-year-old star for hit and run.

That's worse than the beating she took in the Melrose Place season finale!

Valet That Thing

Heather Locklear may valet her car permanently if she keeps racking up the traffic offenses, although the actress was merely cited and released for this one.

In '08, Locklear was arrested in Santa Barbara for allegedly driving under the influence of prescription medications. She pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving and was placed on three years probation.

This scary mug shot was among the things resulting from that.

The latest incident could be a probation violation. Stay tuned.
