No new charges have been filed against Diamond and no other information is available at this time according to the Ozaukee County Jail.

Recently, the 39-year-old was released from jail after serving three months for recklessly endangering safety, possession of a switchblade knife and carrying a concealed weapon in 2014 following an altercation at a bar in Wisconsin.

In his first interview since being released, Diamond explained to his Saved by the Bell co-star Mario Lopez on Extra that he was only defending his fiancee Amanda Schutz and that since becoming free, he had a new lease on life.

"I want to put the tomfoolery and malarkey behind me... for that clean slate," he said. "Time for a change."
