Report: Randy Quaid pays $10K hotel bill
Randy and Evi Quaid have paid the allegedly delinquent $10,000 California hotel bill that led to their arrests last week, sources told TMZ.
The U.S. actor and his wife were arrested in Texas and charged with burglary, conspiracy and defrauding an innkeeper after they allegedly ran up the bill at the San Ysidro Ranch, then left without paying.
TMZ said the couple paid the hotel about $5,000 shortly after the warrant was issued for their arrests, then paid the balance Wednesday.
The Santa Barbara County District Attorney's office told the entertainment news Web site the pair still face the charges, even though they paid their bill.
The Quaids are expected to appear in court Oct. 19.
Randy Quaid, 58 -- the brother of actor Dennis Quaid -- is a former cast member on
Saturday Night Live, whose big-screen credits include the
National Lampoon Vacation movies,
Independence Day, and
Brokeback Mountain. He was nominated for a supporting actor Oscar for
The Last Detail.
