Dustin Diamond, who played Screech on the 1990s TV show Saved by the Bell, was convicted by a jury of carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct in connection with a stabbing incident on Christmas night at a bar in Port Washington, USA, where he lives.
The first charge carries a maximum sentence of nine months in prison, the second charge a maximum of 90 days.
Screech/Diamond allegedly got into a fight with a patron at a bar and stabbed at him. Diamond initially told police he was wielding a pen but later admitted it was a flick knife.
Casey Smet, the man who Diamond allegedly stabbed, testified Thursday that he didn’t know he’d been injured until he left the bar.
While Diamond is fondly remembered for his role as lovable doofus, Screech, on Saved By the Bell, he has since become infamous for his 2006 self-released sex tape, and his scathing autobiography on his time on the show, Behind the Bell.
It goes a little further to explaining why Screech didn’t appear in Jimmy Fallon’s perfect Saved by the Bell reunion sketch a few weeks ago…
