The 38 year old known best for his role as “Samuel ‘Screech’ Powers” on hit series “Saved by the Bell”, entered Ozaukee County Jail in Wisconsin on Friday to begin a 4 month sentence.
The incarceration is the result of carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct charges after a bar room fight in Port Washington, Wisconsin, on Christmas Day in 2014. Diamond claims he pulled out a pocketknife to protect his girlfriend Amanda Schutz from a group of men and “accidentally stabbed one of the men during the altercation.” He was convicted of the charges in June 2015 & should’ve started his sentence last summer, but it was delayed by a judge after Diamond appealed the conviction. However, last month Diamond withdrew the appeal, thus checking in to start his sentence Friday.
Good Luck in there, buddy!
