(Newser) – Randy and Evi Quaid didn’t pay the $10,000 hotel bill they’re accused of skipping out because it got lost in the mail, their lawyer told a Santa Barbara, Calif., court today. The Quaids didn’t think they had to pay upon checkout, and changed addresses before the bill—if not the law—caught up with them. Though they’ve paid, TMZ adds, they’re still due in court Oct. 19.
