Dustin Diamond was arrested on Friday morning for allegedly stabbing a man with a switchblade on Christmas evening.
According to local reports, the actor – who is best known as ‘Screech’ in Saved By The Bell – was with his girlfriend Amanda in a bar in Port Washington, Wisconsin when they got into an altercation with another couple. According to Gossip Cop, Amanda was the first to get physical, before Diamond came to ‘defend’ her.
TMZ reports that Diamond actually stabbed the man before leaving the place. Cops located them shortly after at their home and arrested them.
Amanda was charged with disorderly conduct, while Diamond was charged with possession of switch blade, reckless endangerment and possession of a concealed weapon. He appeared in court today claiming self-defence, and his bail was set at $10,000.
The guy he stabbed did not suffer life-threatening injuries and is recovering at home.
