Actor Diamond faces stabbing trial

A US judge has said the actor who played Screech in the 1990s school sitcom Saved By The Bell must stand trial over a Christmas Day stabbing.

Dustin Diamond is charged with reckless endangerment and two other counts over a fight at a bar near Milwaukee.

Ozaukee County Judge Paul Malloy heard a police officer's testimony before saying there was enough evidence for the case against Diamond to continue.

A criminal complaint says Diamond and his fiancee got into a tussle with two men and a woman at the Grand Avenue Saloon in Port Washington. Diamond lives in the small community north of Milwaukee.

Diamond told police he accidentally stabbed one of the men while trying to defend his fiancee. The man was not seriously injured.
