Dustin Diamond may have passed away. He was born on January 7, 1977.
Diamond was born to a Jewish family in San Jose, California. His father taught digital electronics for a computer-processing firm and his mother was a computer operator for Pacific Bell.
Diamond currently resides in Port Washington, Wisconsin. He married longtime girlfriend Jennifer Misner in 2009, though the two have since separated.
In 2001, Diamond filed for bankruptcy in California. On June 13, 2006, Diamond appeared on The Howard Stern Show asking listeners to visit his website and purchase a t-shirt. Diamond stated on the show that he hoped to sell 30,000 t-shirts that read “I paid $15.00 to save Screeech’s house” in order to raise $250,000 and avoid foreclosure on his house.
On December 26, 2014, Diamond was arrested in Ozaukee County, Wisconsin, for possession of a switchblade knife, which he was alleged to have pulled during a bar altercation in which a man was stabbed. Amanda Schutz, his fiancée, also faced a charge of disorderly conduct in relation to the incident, was found guilty and fined $500. On May 29, 2015, Diamond was convicted of two misdemeanors, carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct. He was cleared of the most serious charge, recklessly endangering public safety. On June 25, 2015, Diamond was sentenced to four months in prison. He served three months and was released on probation. Diamond’s probation agent determined that he had violated the terms of his probation, and he was arrested in May 2016.
He is an American actor, director, stand-up comedian, and musician best known for his role as Samuel “Screech” Powers throughout the Saved by the Bell franchise.
