Dustin Diamond, the actor who played Screech in the 1990s TV show Saved By The Bell, has appeared in court in Wisconsin.
Diamond is accused of stabbing a man during a bar fight in Port Washington, 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.
