The actor known for his role as Samuel 'Screech' Powers is charged for possession of a switchblade and reckless endangerment.

AceShowbiz - Dustin Diamond was arrested Friday morning in Ozaukee County, Wisconsin. The "Saved by the Bell" star was taken into police custody for possession of a switchblade, first degree recklessly endangering safety, and carrying a concealed weapon.

The December 26 arrest reportedly stemmed from a bar fight. The actor, now 37 years old, known for his role as the goofball Samuel "Screech" Powers on the hit '90s high school sitcom is scheduled to appear in court Friday afternoon. His bail is set for $1,000.

After "Saved by the Bell", Dustin released a sex tape in 2006 and published a memoir "Behind the Bell" three years later. He became estranged from his former co-stars over claims of teen sex and drug use in the book. Last year he took part in reality game show "Celebrity Big Brother".
