(AP) – TV actor Dustin Diamond was convicted Friday of two misdemeanors stemming from a barroom fight, but a Wisconsin jury cleared the former Saved by the Bell actor of the most serious felony charge.

He had pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of recklessly endangering public safety, plus two lesser misdemeanours — carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct. Diamond said some people had wanted to shake his hand and pose for photos at the bar, but that others were badgering him and his girlfriend, Amanda Schutz. The man who was stabbed, 25-year-old Casey Smet, testified on Thursday that he did not know he had been stabbed until he had left the bar and was talking to police.

After maintaining a serious facade during most of the trial, Diamond grinned yesterday when a defence lawyer asked if he liked being compared to the character Screech.
