'Balloon' Fam Gets $42,000 Bill

12/22/2009 4:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The two morons behind that terrible "Balloon Boy" stunt are finally going to have to pay the price for all of their dumbassery -- a cool $42,000.

'Balloon' Fam Gets $42,000 Bill

The Larimer County District Attorney's office claims it sent the bill to Richard and Mayumi Heene -- demanding the couple pay restitution to the agencies which took part in the rescue attempt when they thought 6-year-old Falcon Heene had gone airborne in a massive Jiffy Pop-style hot air balloon.

According to the Denver Post, the DA claims the Heene's $42k will go towards the police, the national guard and the Federal Aviation Administration -- who all played a role on October 15.

A lawyer for the Heenes claims they won't pay a cent until they see receipts and records -- we're pretty sure there's no shortage of TV footage.

ah    

What about the poor farmer whose fields were decimated in the polices attempt to catch the balloon? If I recall correctly, it was a wheat field that can only be harvested or planted every two years. Or something along those lines, they should have to pay for his/her losses!

These fools got jail time and a bill for the resorces they wasted. IMO the guy whose field the rescue team destroyed should sue them for damages as well. These people should not be raising kids!
