'Saved by the Bell' Star Dustin Diamond Released From Jail Early

Dustin Diamond, who played goofy Screech on the popular one thousand nine hundred ninety sitcom "Saved By the Bell," was sprung from jail Monday — a mo early for excellent behavior, WI authorities said.

The 39-year-old actor had been placed in a work release program after beginning his four-month sentence in mid-January for a barroom stabbing.

Diamond became a jail custodian, and the program entitled him to get one day of "good time" for every twenty-four hours worked, Ozaukee County Sheriff Jim Johnson told NBC affiliate WTMJ.

As a result, he racked up thirty days — and an early get-of-jail pass, the sheriff said.

Diamond, who lives in suburban Milwaukee, was convicted latest year of stabbing another bar patron in the armpit with a switchblade in December two thousand fourteen, causing non-life-threatening wounds, according to police.

He said he was defending himself and his then-fiancée, Amanda Schutz, who was found guilty of disorderly conduct.

Diamond and Schutz also had to pay $1.500 in restitution to the victim.
