VIDEO: Watch Saved By The Bell Actor “Screech” Pull A Knife On A Bar Patron Who Took His Picture
Famously wimpy actor “Screech” (Dustin Diamond) from “Saved by the Bell” has gotten into judo and is supposed to be a real tough guy. Also, it goes without saying that the guy has been a “D” level celebrity since he was young. So, that begs the question: why is he waving around a switchblade just because a few people are taking pictures of him and his girlfriend in a bar?
In a police report obtained by CNN, it says; ‘Diamond stated that he did not intentionally stab the individual in the bar but that chaos broke out and people were grabbing at him and that he swung his arms to break free.’
Other bar patrons are claiming ‘a women was upset because people were taking pictures of her and her boyfriend,’ and shoving broke out.
…This after TMZ claimed the Celebrity Fit Club alum and his girlfriend allegedly got into a dispute with another couple at the bar because they were being photographed, the website reported.
After the couple exited the establishment, things escalated when Dustin’s girlfriend reportedly pushed the woman.
That is when the actor pulled out a knife, it was claimed.
The victim is reported to have suffered a half inch wound and bled heavily.
The couple who Dustin argued with then fled before authorities arrived, according to the report.
Authorities found the weapon in Diamond’s possession in his car, and his girlfriend was booked on a disorderly conduct charge, though she was later released.
…He has not paid his $10,000 bond for release from a Ozaukee County jail and is claiming he acted in self-defense.
Meanwhile cops are hoping to get their hands on another video taken on the scene as the one they currently have is a little bit to shaky for them to clearly see the incident.
According to state regulations, owning a switchblade or any ‘blade which opens by pressing a button, spring or other device in the handle’ is against the law.
