Aww, she seemed like such a nice kid.
Topanga from Boy meets World gets a DUI
In the last two or three years it’s become apparent that a DUI is the new… crap, what did washed up, former D-list celebrities do to get attention before the DUI craze? I really do think it’s a craze. There’s no way so many celebs have just suddenly started “accidentally” drinking too much and getting behind the wheel. If anyone can afford a cab… or a driver… it’s these morons we keep reading about. Apparently former child stars you barely remember are hopping on the bandwagon. “Boy Meets World” star Danielle Fishel, aka Topanga, got arrested on a DUI warrant last Thursday.
Danielle Fishel, the erstwhile tween costar of ABC’s Boy Meets World, was picked up last week in Orange County for a warrant in a drunken-driving case. The 26-year-old actress, an O.C. native, was pulled over shortly before 5 a.m. Thursday morning in Newport Beach for a warrant that had been issued in Los Angeles. “It was a pretty simple arrest,” Sgt. Randy Querry of the Newport Beach Police Department told the local Daily Pilot newspaper, adding that Fishel was not drunk at the time of her arrest.
She was booked into the Newport Beach jail and released several hours later. No further details of the warrant or original drunken-driving case were immediately available.
Aside from “Boy Meets World,” Fishel is most known for “secretly” dating Lance Bass when he was in Nsync. I say “secretly” because the band members weren’t allowed to officially have girlfriends, lest they drive their teenage fans away. I’m guessing Lance might have had a few reasons of his own for keeping the relationship under wraps. I’m not sure if Danielle Fishel just didn’t know Lance was gay or if she made him gay. And if this led her to drink is also a matter of speculation. Just kidding, just kidding, don’t yell. I love it when washed up stars do bad things.
