Former ‘Saved by the Bell’ Star Dustin Diamond Pleads Not Guilty to Holiday Stabbing Incident

0

Dustin Diamond has pleaded not guilty to charges relating to a Christmas Day stabbing incident at a bar in Wisconsin.

The former Saved by the Bell star was arrested last month amid allegations he used a switchblade to injure a fellow patron during an altercation at the Grand Avenue Saloon in Port Washington.

Diamond reportedly told police he didn’t mean to harm the man, who had admitted to forcefully shoving the actor as he stepped in to defend his fiancee, Amanda Schutz, during a fight.

The 38-year-old was charged with felony reckless endangerment and misdemeanors of disorderly conduct and carrying a concealed weapon, and earlier this month, Ozaukee County Circuit Court Judge Paul Malloy ruled the case will go to trial.

Diamond, who is free on $10,000 bail, returned to court on Thursday to plead his innocence. He faces up to 10 years behind bars if found guilty of the felony charge.

Schutz also entered a not guilty plea to a count of misdemeanor disorderly conduct. She agreed to a $500 signature bond, which will result in a fine if she fails to show up for her next court date.
