Luckily, Mr. Daniels was able to frighten away the person and the LAPD quickly responded. They are both well. Mr. Daniels thanks all his fans for their concern. – Bill’s Media Team.”
Daniels joked about the situation on Good Morning America.
“I struggled with an intruder, took him to the ground, I beat him up and he ran away with bruises all over him,” Daniels joked. “Would you like to print that? You better not. It’s a total lie.”
Actor Will Friedle, who played Eric Matthews on Boy Meets World, praised Daniel on Twitter.
“Don’t ever mess with Mr. Feeny! #LoveYouBillAndBonnie.”
Danielle Fisher, who played Topanga Lawrence on Boy Meets World, tweeted “Weird detail no one’s reporting, as the burglar ran away he yelled, “Dream! Try! Do Good!” ”
