‘Saved By The Bell’ alum Dustin Diamond (who played Screech Powers) was sentenced to FOUR MONTHS in jail on Thursday after appearing in court.
Let’s catch everyone up to date here: According to US Weekly, he was convicted in late May on two misdemeanor counts that came from a Christmas Day bar fight and subsequent stabbing. He was already cleared of a felony charge in May, but the jury at the time found him guilty of carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct. Diamond claimed he carried a knife for protection, and accidentally stabbed a man during a fight.
That is definitely NOT something innocent Screech would do!
He went on to say, “I figured it would take the fight out of the people,” Diamond said of pulling out his knife. “Casey [Smet, the stabbing victim] didn’t even know he was injured, so how would I?”
