PORT WASHINGTON, Wis. (AP) — Former Saved by the Bell star Dustin Diamond is back in jail in Wisconsin after an official says he violated the terms of his parole.

Ozaukee County jail records show Diamond, who was recently released after serving time for disorderly conduct and concealed weapon convictions, was arrested Wednesday.

An official at the jail who answered the phone Wednesday night but declined to give his name says Diamond was in custody because of a probation violation. The official said he didn't have any further details.

The 39-year-old actor was convicted in Wisconsin last year on the charges stemming from a 2014 bar room brawl. He was released in April.

The attorney who represented Diamond in that case wasn't immediately available for comment. Diamond played Screech on the 1990s TV show.
