Dustin Diamond, the man who played Screech in the popular 90s TV show Saved by the Bell, was arrested yesterday morning after allegedly stabbing a man at a local bar in Wisconsin on Christmas day.
According to the Ozaukee County Sheriff's Department, Diamond was charged with endangering safety, disorderly conduct and carrying a concealed weapon.
Police told ABC News that Diamond and his 27-year-old fiancee, Amanda Schutz – who live in Port Washington – were out at several bars when a fight was sparked between them, two men and a woman.
A man was stabbed under the armpit, but police say the injury was not serious.
Diamond claims he had a "pen" during the brawl: Police found a switchblade in his car which appeared to be covered in blood. Diamond claims he was defending his fiancee.
Diamond is due to appear in Ozaukee County court on Friday afternoon. Bail was set at $10,000.
