Who ever though that Dennis Quaid -- the guy who got in a custody battle with Meg Ryan over their guru -- would turn out to seem the sane one in the Quaid family? 

Dennis' older brother Randy has stepped in it again, missing a court appearance in California and thus engendering an arrest warrant against him and his wife, the AP reports.

The pair were supposed to appear in a Santa Barbara criminal court for a hearing on charges they defrauded an innkeeper. Those charges got them arrested in West Texas earlier this year.

The posted bond and were freed, but their failure to appear means they've forfeited the $40,000 they paid to get out.

Quaid's attorney has said the dispute with the Cailfornia hotel was all a misunderstanding over a credit card. As for missing the court appearance, he didn't return calls from the AP.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
