PORT WASHINGTON, Wisconsin (AP) -- Dustin Diamond, the actor who played Screech in the 1990s television show "Saved by the Bell," is expected to appear in a courtroom on a stabbing charge.
Diamond is accused of stabbing a man during a bar fight on Christmas Day in Wisconsin, where he currently lives. A criminal complaint charges Diamond with second-degree recklessly endangering safety, disorderly conduct and carrying a concealed weapon.
A hearing is scheduled Monday afternoon.
The criminal complaint says Diamond and his fiancee got into a tussle with two men and a woman on Thursday night.
Diamond told police he accidentally stabbed one of the men while trying to defend his fiancee. The man was not seriously injured. Police say officers recovered a switchblade.
