So what did you do on your Christmas holiday? Did you get into a bar fight and stab a man? Well, Dustin Diamond, AKA “Screech” from Saved By the Bell, did. Call him old fashioned, I guess.
Apparently, Screech (I refuse to call him by his real name, call the cops), was defending his fiancee and in doing so, wound up stabbing a man. Dude got arrested. I guess it’s not all right and I guess he wasn’t saved by the bell. Though he remains chipper in his mugshot:
Here’s the story, from the LA Times:
“Saved by the Bell” actor Dustin Diamond was charged Friday with second-degree recklessly endangering safety, disorderly conduct and carrying a concealed weapon after a Wisconsin bar fight late Christmas night.
A Port Washington, Wis., police report said the former child star, famous for playing Screech on the sitcom “Saved by the Bell,” admitted accidentally stabbing a man while defending his fiancee from two men, according to the Associated Press.
In court, Diamond saw his bail boosted to $10,000 from $1,000. He had been arrested in the wee hours Friday on initial charges of possession of a switchblade knife, carrying a concealed weapon and first-degree recklessly endangering safety, a felony, according to the Ozaukee County Sheriff’s Department website.
The second-degree endangering charge is also a felony, the AP said. The other charges are misdemeanors.
TMZ obtained video from the bar, north of Milwaukee, in which an onlooker exclaims: “He’s got a … knife.” Police told the website that the wounds were not life-threatening.
Man, just when you thought you couldn’t dislike this guy anymore, he pulls an Andy Dick and gets arrested for something stupid. And look at his dumb mugshot. Look how freakin’ smug he is. I can’t stand this guy.
