Saved By The Bell actor Dustin Diamond has been arrested in Wisconsin for possession of a switch blade after an altercation in a bar, where he was sitting with his girlfriend.

According to reports, an argument with another couple escalated after he confronted them for taking pictures.

The 37-year-old was arrested on $1000 bail on Christmas, and reports claim he is still in police custody.

He is due to appear in court later today in Wisconsin.

In that state of Wisconsin, a switchblade or a “blade which opens by pressing a button, spring or other device” is illegal.

Dustin shot to fame as the loveable nerd Screech Powers in hit 90s teen show Saved By The Bell.

He later found infamy after starring in a homemade sex tape which he released online.

In 2013, he entered the Celebrity Big Brother where he was the fourth housemate to be evicted.
