Saved by the Bell star Dustin “Screech” Diamond was sentenced to four months in prison and 15 months probation this morning for stabbing a man in a Wisconsin bar on Christmas Day. The 38-year-old actor, who was convicted of carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct in May, faced a possible sentence of five years.

Late Christmas night, Diamond stabbed a man in Port Washington, Wisc., bar during a scuffle that, Diamond alleged, began when a woman punched his girlfriend, Amanda Schutz. Witnesses later testified that it was Schultz who started the fight. Diamond initially claimed he stabbed the man with a pen during the fight but later changed his story after video of the brawl emerged. Last month, his girlfriend was also convicted of disorderly conduct. She faces a 90 day sentence, according to ABC News.
