Dustin Diamond’s lawyer blasted in court for misconduct.

The former “Saved by the Bell” star stands accused of one felony count of reckless endangerment and misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and carrying a concealed weapon for allegedly stabbing a man in a bar in Wisconsin on Christmas Day last year.PORT WASHINGTON, Wis. (AP) — A woman testified Thursday that she punched actor Dustin Diamond’s girlfriend in the face during a bar fight in Wisconsin just moments before someone yelled that Diamond had a knife.

There was a brief pause during proceedings as the prosecutor, Distract Attorney Adam Gerol, objected to a good luck message the defence attorney, Thomas Alberti, had written on Diamond’s car. Diamond denies the charges, claiming he was defending his fiancee Amanda Schutz, who is facing a misdemeanor disorderly conduct count over the incident. In December last year police reported that Diamond, who played Screech in the 90s TV series, and his girlfriend Amanda Schultz got into a brawl with another group of people at the Grand Ave Saloon in Washington. The actor’s trial got off to a false start on Wednesday when his lawyer Thomas Alberti arrived at Ozaukee County Circuit Court with “Good luck to Dustin & Amanda” written on the rear window of his car. When Judge Paul Malloy learned of the message, he gave Alberti five minutes to remove it from his vehicle, saying, “I’m telling you right now, any more shenanigans like that and you’ll find yourself in contempt faster than fast.” Alberti told CBS 58 News, “They’re just good people.

The man who was stabbed, Casey Smet, also testified Thursday, saying he didn’t know he had been stabbed until after he left the bar and was talking to police. Diamond’s defense attorney has maintained that no one saw Diamond stab Smet and footage of the altercation between the two men is too murky to confirm the allegation.
