Dustin Diamond was arrested in Wisconsin early Friday morning (Dec. 27) for allegedly stabbing a guy. The Saved By The Bell star whipped out his switchblade, allegedly, and attacked during a confrontation at the Grand Avenue Saloon on Christmas.
According to court docs … the victim suffered a 1/2 inch wound under his armpit and bled heavily — but he didn’t notice it had even happened until moments later.
Officers located Dustin and his girlfriend in his car not long after … and the knife was in his ride. Dustin’s girlfriend was booked on a disorderly conduct charge.
Cops tell us the victim suffered non-life threatening wounds … and he’s already home recovering.
Diamond is claiming self defense … saying he and his wife were attacked in the bar. The actor appeared in court Friday morning and his bail was set at $10K.
When cops caught up with Diamond, he initially lied at first and said the knife was a pen. Smh.
