Take it away, TMZ:
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. 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.
Speaking of couples made of garbage, Randy and Evi Quaid have finally been arrested.
