Dustin Diamond, the actor best known for playing Screech on Saved By the Bell, is back in jail. The AP reports that the actor violated the terms of his parole and was arrested on Wednesday in Ozaukee County, Wisconsin. He was first arrested in the winter of 2014 when he stabbed another man during a barroom brawl on Christmas Day, and then found guilty of two misdemeanor charges — carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct — and sentenced to four months in prison. He got out early, serving a little less than three months, but now finds himself back in jail for probation violation. In an interview with fellow Saved By the Bell castmate Mario Lopez just last week, Diamond said, “I want to put the tomfoolery and malarkey behind me … for that clean slate. Time for a change.”
