(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. The actor, who played Screech in the popular 1990s television series, was cleared of recklessly endangering public safety by a jury in Wisconsin but found guilty of lesser charges of carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct. The man who was stabbed, 25-year-old Casey Smet, testified on Thursday that he didn’t know he had been stabbed until he had left the bar and was talking to police.

Thomas Alberti, his lawyer, was reprimanded for driving to the courthouse with the message “good luck to Dustin and Amanda” scrawled in the back window of his car. “I’m telling you right now, any more shenanigans like that and you’ll find yourself in contempt faster than fast,” Judge Malloy told Mr Alberti, according to E! After maintaining a serious facade during most of the trial, Diamond grinned Friday when a defense attorney asked if he liked being compared to the character Screech.
