Dustin Diamond Found Guilty Of Stabbing Man

By : Alex Bentley |



Screech from Saved By The Bell has been convicted for stabbing a man in a fight.

Dustin Diamond, 38, was found guilty of carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct, but was not convicted for the more serious charge of recklessly endangering public safety.

The 90s icon may be facing a possible 10 months in prison, but showed no emotion when the verdict was read out.


The fight took place in Wisconsin on Christmas Day. His claim is that his girlfriend got punched in the face, so he pulled the knife out to protect her.

He said:

I felt like we were being set up for antagonistic purposes.


The man didn’t realise that he had been stabbed until he left the bar, so he didn’t sustain any serious injuries. It sounds more like a scratch than a stabbing, if that’s the case. But still, top dickhead behaviour.

His girlfriend, Amanda Schulz, also got charged with disorderly conduct, and the pair of them will be sentenced at a later date.

Screech was missing from the recent Jimmy Fallon reunion of Saved By The Bell because if his legal trouble.

Thankfully, Kelly Kapowski was in it, and it’s amazing to see that my first crush still looks amazing.
