Saved By The Bell's Dustin Diamond AKA Screech ARRESTED For Allegedly Using Switchblade! Updates HERE
THIRD UPDATE: Wisconsin police have requested surveillance footage from Randy Buser, the owner of Grand Avenue Saloon, to prove if Diamond stabbed the man, as well as the involvement of each suspect. Buser doesn't believe the video would be useful as the footage is jumpy. Diamond remains in jail, waiting for someone to post his bail. A hearing is scheduled for Monday.
SECOND UPDATE: Friday afternoon, Diamond appeared at the Ozaukee County Court where he alleged he accidentally stabbed the man while trying to defend his fiancé, Amanda Schutz, at the Grand Avenue Saloon in Port Washington, WI. His bail was increased from $1000 to $10,000 and will attend another hearing Dec. 29. No attorney was listed in the court records.
UPDATE: According to cops, we have new information regarding the bar fight. Late Christmas evening, Diamond and a guy got into a heated argument where the actor then allegedly stabbed him. Diamond and his girlfriend fled the scene, only for police to find them moments later. His girlfriend was charged with disorderly conduct. The victim's wounds were not life threatening, and he is at home recovering.
Former Saved By the Bell star Dustin Diamond was arrested in Wisconsin Friday morning for allegedly endangering someone's life with a switchblade.
The Ozaukee County Sheriff charged the 37-year-old actor with possession of a switchblade, reckless endangerment and carrying a concealed weapon.
While details are murky, an unidentified source claims Diamond got into a bar fight.
Though bail has been set at $1000, it appears that the actor — best known for playing Screech — is still in jail.
He is scheduled to appear at the Ozaukee County Court this afternoon.
