Dustin Diamond, best known for playing lovable geek Screech Powers on the 1990s teen sitcom “Saved by the Bell,” is back in detention.

CNN reported Thursday morning that the 39-year-old actor is behind bars in Wisconsin for a “probation hold,” which “occurs when the offender’s probation agent believes he or she has not complied with the terms of their probation.”

“No new charges have been filed against Diamond, and no other information is available at this time, according to the jail,” CNN reported.

Mr. Diamond previously served three months of a four-month sentence for stabbing a man in a bar fight on Christmas Day 2014.
