GROWN-UP SCREECH: Jury Convicts ‘Saved By the Bell’ Actor, Dustin Diamond, on Stabbing Incident

A jury has found actor Dustin Diamond not guilty of one felony charge in a Christmas Day bar stabbing last year.

But it found him guilty of two misdemeanor charges, according to court documents released Friday.
