Saved By The Bell actor in court

Dustin Diamond, the actor who played Screech in the 1990s TV show Saved By The Bell, has appeared in a US court.

Diamond is accused of stabbing a man during a bar fight in Port Washington, Wisconsin, where he lives.

A criminal complaint charges Diamond with second-degree recklessly endangering safety, disorderly conduct and carrying a concealed weapon.

Diamond posted 10,000 US dollars bail before his hearing in Ozaukee County Circuit Court.

Defence lawyer Thomas Alberti requested reduced bail and a jury trial for Diamond, who did not speak in court.

The complaint says Diamond and his fiancee got into a tussle with two men and a woman at the bar on Thursday night.

Diamond told police he accidentally stabbed one of the men while trying to defend his fiancee.
