Screech Was Arrested In Wisconsin The Day After Christmas For Carrying A Switchblade

Dustin Diamond, everybody’s favorite former Saved by the Bell cast member to hate, was arrested in Ozaukee County Wisconsin earlier this morning. You’re all probably wondering the same thing: What did he do this time? Did he venture into public indecency since the sex tape wasn’t raunchy enough? Another boxing match? A Saved by the Bell reunion featuring Screech only?

None of the above. Instead, Diamond was caught with a concealed weapon. According to Fox 6 News:

Diamond was taken into custody for possession of a switchblade, first degree recklessly endangering safety and carrying a concealed weapon.

Diamond is scheduled to appear in a Ozaukee County Court at 1:30 p.m. Friday, December 26th.

Maybe it’s because I’m an *sshole, from Texas, or both, but a switchblade? Really? Did he think Zach and Slater would be on hand to tell him how uncool carrying a switchblade is?

I’m curious to see how this plays out. Until then, I’ll have to settle for the most likely scenario: Screech wasting away in his county jail cell, thinking he’s receiving a severe talking-to from his high school friends. In reality, his cellmate Bubba eyes his every move.
