The list of celebrities whose houses have been broken into is long and gets longer with each passing day. Just in the past couple of months, Christina Milian, Chrissy Metz, Yasiel Puig, Rihanna, and Brandi Glanville have all been hit up. Many of them were hit up by a teenage bling ring. In Hollywood, even the criminal rings get rebooted. Most of those robberies ended with the famous type losing lots of expensive shit, but on Saturday night, the only thing the criminal left with was an almost heart attack from fucking with Mr. Feeny! 91-year-old William Daniels, who played Mr. Feeny in Boy Meets World, Dr. Mark Craig in St. Elsewhere, Dustin Hoffman’s dad in The Graduate, and the voice of KITT in Knight Rider, scared off an intruder who was trying to get into his house.
If the thought of Mr. Feeny loosening his tie and pushing up his blazer sleeves to punch an evil thief in the throat has made your day and you want to keep it that way, stop reading and believe what you want to believe. But if you want to read the not-as-exciting truth of what happened, keep on.
TMZ says that William Daniels and his wife of over 65 years, Bonnie Bartlett (she also played Ellen his wife on St. Elsewhere), were at their home in the L.A. area on Saturday night when they heard a noise at 9:20. A thief tried to kick down their back door. William went to check on who has the audacity to try to fuck with him, and when he turned on the lights, the intruder made a correct decision by running away from the house. His rep confirmed the news to People:
“Someone tried to break in to the home of Mr. and Mrs. William Daniels on Saturday evening. 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.”
Cops believe that Mr. Feeny wasn’t a direct target and it was a random attempted burglary. He and his wife have since stepped up their home security.
It’s obvious that one of three things happened:
- The intruder is a 70s kids and recognized the stepfather from Sarah T. – Portrait of a Teenage Alcoholic (remember that?!) and knew not to fuck with him and ran off.
- The intruder is an 80s kid and when William screamed something at ’em, they recognized the voice at KITT, knew not to fuck with him and ran off.
- The intruder is a 90s kid and recognized him as Mr. Feeny and knew not to fuck with him and ran off.
William Daniels is the kind of legend who can spook a bitch of any age!
