Dustin Diamond ‘Screech’ Sentenced to Four Months in Jail
Dustin Diamond's stabbing incident from December has now landed the actor in jail for four months.
Diamondm better known for his character 'Screech' on the television show 'Saved By the Bell,' was involved in an altercation at a bar in Wisconsin. According to ABC News Radio, he was found not guilty of a felony, but Judge Paul Malloy determined the sentence based on May 31 verdict depicting Diamond guilty of carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct.
Diamond has been in the news in recent years due to his tell all book titled 'Behind the Bell,' and due to his absence from the recent 'Saved By the Bell' cast reunion on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Mark-Paul Gosselaar, who portrayed Zack on the series, tried to downplay his reaction to the book in an interview with HuffPost Live last August, but his current co-star Breckin Meyer didn't hold back.
When Huff Post Live later interviewed Mario Lopez, they showed him the interview with Gosselaar and Meyer. He tried to be as kind about it all as possible saying that he was cool with Diamond.
Diamond seems to have changed his tune. He was recently interviewed by the Oprah Winfrey Network and shared his embarrassment.
