Actor Dustin Diamond due in court

Dustin Diamond, the actor who played Screech in the 1990s television show Saved By The Bell, is expected to appear in a Wisconsin courtroom.

Diamond, who appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in the UK in 2013, is accused of stabbing a man during a bar fight on Christmas Day in Port Washington, where he currently lives.

A criminal complaint charges the children's TV star with second-degree recklessly endangering safety, disorderly conduct and carrying a concealed weapon.

A hearing is scheduled in Ozaukee County Circuit Court.

The criminal complaint says Diamond and his fiancee got into a tussle with two men and a woman at the Grand Avenue Saloon on December 25.

Diamond told police he accidentally stabbed one of the men while trying to defend his fiancee. The man was not seriously injured. Police said officers recovered a switchblade.
