Sorry, SBTB..one of your heroes is going OITNB.
Dustin Diamond appeared in court in Port Washington, Wisconsin (my home state!). where he was sentenced to four months in jail,ÃÂ the Associated Press reported.
If you remember, the 38 year old got hammered and stabbed some dude on Christmas (contrary to popular belief this is not how Wisconsinites traditionally celebrate Xmas). Diamond was convicted in late May on two misdemeanor counts.
He was already cleared of a felony charge in May, but the jury at the time found him guilty of carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct (which, arguably, is fairly typical to Wisconsin). Diamond claimed he carried a knife for protection, and accidentally stabbed a man during a fight, but we ALL know he was drunk as hell and ragin.’
“I figured it would take the fight out of the people,” Diamond said of pulling out his knife. Ã¢â¬ÅCasey [Smet, the stabbing victim] didnÃ¢â¬â¢t even know he was injured, so how would I?Ã¢â¬Â
