The Quaids --

Their $10,000 Excuse

9/30/2009 8:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Randy and Evi Quaid's lawyer just told the Santa Barbara County D.A. they will be front and center in court on October 19 for their arraignment on three felony counts. Their defense ... it was all just a giant misunderstanding.

the Quiads
The D.A.'s office tells us the Quaids' lawyer said the couple -- who have been accused of skipping out on a $10,000 bill at the San Ysidro Ranch -- didn't think they had to pay the bill before they left ... they thought they could pay at a later date.

The lawyer tells us the bill got lost in the mail because they moved -- and the couple has now paid the bill in full.

The D.A. is not ready to drop the charges and will be all ears on Oct 19.

Stay tuned.

ALL " celebrities " ( even "D" level )

I have a hunch that Screech from 'Saved By the Bell' is going to look like that pic (above) of Randy Quaid someday soon...

Ok, here is what I want to know. Randy Q. used to be a talented actor, when did it go downhill?
where did this chick come from and what are they on?
he was never the kooky celeb, now he looks like hell warmed over.

It makes total sense. Alot of times when I'm at the grocery store or Banana Republic I'll just take what I need and then send the store money a week or two later. It's a pretty good system.

This couple seem very troubled, they might not be in touch with reality. They need to get off their high horse and come down to reality.Poeple are just sick of the celebs. having a different set of standards than the rest of the country! Thos days are gone.everyone needs to be accountable for thier actions.If not then the courts can decide.These fools cost taxpayers money for courts to be tied up by pure selfish tatics.
