Dustin Diamond: ‘Saved By The Bell’ Star To Begin Four-Month Jail Sentence In January

Dustin Diamond is set to start his four-month jail sentence in January, People Magazine reports.

The 38-year-old actor, best known for his role as Samuel “Screech” Powers on the 90’s teen comedy Saved by the Bell, which ran from 1989 to 1993, was sentenced to four months in jail in June for stabbing a man during a brawl at the Grand Avenue Saloon in Port Washington, Wisconsin, which is approximately 25 miles north of Milwaukee. The incident took place on Christmas Day in 2014. Diamond was convicted in May, 2014, of two misdemeanors in connection with the fight: carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct. The felony charge of recklessly endangering public safety was dropped. Diamond’s fiancée, Amanda Schutz, was also arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, but she was later released.
