Danielle Fishel cries and avoids jail

Danielle Fishel (a.k.a. Topanga from Boy Meets World) went before a judge and bawled her eyes out for missing a court date in her DUI case. Apparently her calculated legal strategy worked and her probation was reinstated. Ah, sweet justice. TMZ reports:

Danielle Fishel went under radar as she appeared in a LA Courthouse earlier this year. She had failed to show for a hearing in an earlier DUI case and a warrant was issued for her arrest. Then last December, she was pulled over in the O.C. When cops ran her name in the computer, they found she had a warrant and busted her.

First off, she went under the radar because I guarantee at least half the comments will read “Who the hell is Danielle Fishel?” She was the love interest of Corey Matthews. DUH! God, people, open a book once in a while. Anyway, it’s nice to know that you can simply cry your way out of jail. But, sadly, that didn’t work for me. When I bawled before a judge they threw me right in the slammer. Mostly because it wasn’t even my trial and I sort of parked my car in the juror box – upside down. So called “legal experts” will blame the bottle of Jager I drank for breakfast. I blame the county for letting me build a ramp in five minutes out in the parking lot. Honestly, what do I pay taxes for?
