Saved By the Bell actor Dustin Diamond has been convicted of two misdemeanors—carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conductbut cleared of the felony charge, recklessly endangering public safety in the case stemming from a bar fight last Christmas Day, according to The Associated Press

Diamond was at a Wisconsin bar with his girlfriend Amanda Schulz when patrons began harassing and attacking her, the 38-year-old actor said in his testimony, adding that he never intended to stab anyone and only took out his knife in hopes of deterring further abuse. 

Carrying a concealed weapon carries a maximum sentencing of nine months in prison, while disorderly conduct carries a maximum of 90 days in prison. 

Schulz still faces a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct, according to the AP.
