Dustin Diamond has spent many years proving he’s nothing like Screech from Saved By the Bell. He continued his proud tradition of distancing himself from his most notorious and nerdy role this morning by getting arrested on weapons charges in Wisconsin.
The actor was in possession of a switchblade and arrested for first-degree recklessly endangering safety and carrying a concealed weapon, according to the department’s website.
His bail is set at $1,000 and he is still in jail, police added. He has not entered a plea yet.
Mr. Belding is going to be so pissed. I don’t he’ll even be willing to serve as a character witness. That leaves just Lisa and a few waiters from The Max to speak on his behalf.
Things look pretty, pretty bleak.
