In a new report obtained by CNN, the stabbing reportedly took place late Thursday night during an argument in the Grand Avenue Saloon located in Port Washington, Wisconsin.

Dustin Diamond reportedly told police that he and his girlfriend, Amanda Schutz, 27, were inside the bar, when a group of intoxicated people started behaving rudely and in an insulting manner. Diamond stated that it was at that point he believed things could potentially get out of hand, so he decided to leave Schutz so he could close out their tab. When he looked back to Schutz, he said that he saw two men holding her hair and said she was bleeding.

“‘Diamond said he moved toward his girlfriend when a man grabbed him,’ the report said. ‘Diamond said he might have stabbed the man with a pen used to sign a credit card receipt, but later conceded he was armed with the knife,'” CNN reported.

“Diamond stated that he did not intentionally stab the individual in the bar but that chaos broke out and people were grabbing at him and that he swung his arms to break free,” the police report stated.Inquisitr, the entire situation seemed to have begun as a result of an altercation between multiple women, one of whom was believed to be Amanda Schutz. She was later charged with disorderly conduct and released.
