No one would blame you for not knowing him as Dustin Diamond; to the world, he will always be known as Screech. The comedian rose to fame on Saved by the Bell, and then, unfortunately, fell from fame.
But that doesn't mean Dustin Diamond is going to let anyone take advantage of him, much less steal his PSP games. According to Diamond, he was recently accosted by a female fan outside his hotel room in Omaha, Nebraska. The two had met at a comedy club he was performing in earlier, and she apparently showed up pounding on his door at three in the morning.
Diamond called security and had the young lady removed. Then, as he was exiting his room 45 minutes later to catch a 5:15 AM flight, she showed up again aiming a can of mace at him.
According to an interview with E! Online, Diamond recounted, "Somehow she got back in and is now holding a can of mace up. I'm freaked out and jump back and she says, 'Where's the money, come on, tell me where it is,' and she's trying to look through my bags."
The attacker apparently was not aware that Diamond has fallen on hard times as of late, and is trying to raise money to save his home in Wisconsin. The comedian claims she grabbed his PSP games, said "this will have to do," and turned to run.
He called upon the skills he learned during Celebrity Boxing 2 and tried to stop her. That was when she started yelling "Rape!" and "Help me!"
"I'm thinking great, this is all I need," Diamond said.
As police arrived on the scene, the actor said he was finally able to retrieve his games. He and his alleged attacker both gave statements to police and were released. No charges have been filed, as a spokesperson for the Omaha Police Dept. said it was a case of he said, she said.
"I'm a big gamer, and you don't mess with the D-man's videogames," Diamond said.
