Dustin Diamond’s lawyer blasted in court for misconduct.

PORT WASHINGTON, Wis. (AP) — Testimony has wrapped up for the day in the trial of television actor Dustin Diamond, who is accused of stabbing a man during a bar fight in Wisconsin after a woman punched his girlfriend.

Diamond denies the charges, claiming he was defending his fiancee Amanda Schutz, who is facing a misdemeanor disorderly conduct count over the incident. 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.

Smet says Diamond, who played Screech in the 1990s series “Saved by the Bell,” stabbed him on Christmas Day when the two fought at a bar in Port Washington. 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 38-year-old Diamond is charged with a felony count of second-degree recklessly endangering safety and two misdemeanors — disorderly conduct and carrying a concealed weapon. Diamond and his girlfriend, Amanda Schutz, have pleaded not guilty, and defense attorneys maintain that video footage of the two men fighting is murky.

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.
