Dustin Diamond Arrested For Endangering People With A Switchblade
Dustin Diamond, best known for playing Screech on “Saved by the Bell” and a horrendously unpleasant human ever after, was arrested following a bar fight in Ozaukee County, Wisconsin, early Friday morning. He is currently sitting in jail and being held on charges of “possession of a switchblade, reckless endangerment and carrying a concealed weapon.” According to TMZ, his bail was set at $1000 and he hasn’t been bonded out yet.
The fight reportedly started after another couple at the bar attempted to take his picture from afar and Screech and his wife, Jennifer Misner, started arguing with them, and then the wife pushed them on their way out of the bar, cops were called, and then Screech pulled out a knife.
Sheesh. Like, I get the whole privacy thing and I probably wouldn’t want weirdos taking pictures of me at a bar in Ozaukee County, Wisconsin either, but something like that probably doesn’t need to escalate to like, knife-fight levels of conflict. Then again, from what I’ve seen of Dustin Diamond since “Saved By The Bell” stopped airing, I’d probably run screaming out of the bar before it could get to that point. We get it, Dustin, you are not lovable Screech Powers. You are a weird jerk who won’t shut up about how big his dick is ever. [TMZ]
