One of the stars of the popular early 1990s NBC comedy series “Saved by the Bell” was arrested Wednesday. Time reports that Dustin Diamond, who played Screech on the sitcom, was jailed in Wisconsin for alleged probation violation.
“Two officials at the Ozaukee County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to Time late Wednesday night that Diamond was in custody, but could not provide any more details,” the story reports. “Diamond, 39, served three months in jail earlier this year for his involvement in a bar fight that resulted in a stabbing on Christmas Day . Jurors found Diamond guilty of carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct but not guilty of the felony charge of reckless endangerment.”
