WASHINGTON — The actor who portrayed Screech on the
1990s TV show "Saved by the Bell" is headed to
trial in southeastern Wisconsin where he's accused of
stabbing a man during a confrontation at a bar.
Diamond is expected in Ozaukee (oh-ZAH'-kee) County
Circuit Court Wednesday for the start of his trial on a
felony charge of second-degree recklessly endangering
safety and two misdemeanors — disorderly conduct and
carrying a concealed weapon.
say the 38-year-old Diamond stabbed a man with a pocket
knife during an argument at The Grand Avenue Saloon in
Port Washington on Christmas Day. Diamond's defense
attorney told a judge earlier that of the half-dozen
people at the bar who were interviewed by police, no one
saw Diamond stab the man, who was not seriously hurt.
