Where In The World Is Screech?

What ever happened to Samuel “Screech” Powers? Well, this child star who is best known from his character on the hit tv show Saved by the Bell had a strange encounter earlier this week. According to the Associated Press, Screech fought with a woman who entered his Omaha hotel room. Diamond, 29, who now works as a stand-up comedian and performed at Omaha's Funny Bone Comedy Club last Thursday through Sunday, said in an interview with a Tampa, Fla., radio station that a woman broke into his hotel room early Monday morning and grabbed some video games. He said he held her against the hotel room door until police arrived. But the 28-year-old woman, whose name wasn't immediately available, denied she'd attacked Diamond and told police the comic had assaulted her. Omaha Police Sgt. Teresa Negron called the incident "a case of 'he said, she said,'" and said no charges have been filed, according to the Associated Press. Diamond is currently on a U.S. tour with an adults-only comedy show. In June, he announced he was selling T-shirts to raise money to save his Milwaukee home from foreclosure.
