Diamond was booked on multiple charges including endangering someone’s life after brandishing a switchblade, reckless endangerment and carrying a concealed weapon during a bar fight, TMZ reported.

According TMZ, Diamond and his fiance allegedly got into a altercation with another couple at a Wisconsin bar because they were being photographed.

According to the arrest report, the situation escalated once the couple exited the bar, Diamond’s fiance, Amanda Shultz allegedly pushed the woman, then the actor brandished a switchblade and allegedly stabbed the victim.

Diamond, 37, appeared in court Friday on a charge of second-degree recklessly endangering safety, a felony, as well as misdemeanor charges of carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct, and a judge set his bail at $10,000, according to court records.

The victim suffered a stab wound to his right armpit, but police said the wound was not life threatening and he was recovering at home Friday.

When police caught up to the SUV, Diamond initially told the officer he had a “pen” in his hand but later admitted it was a knife, according to the criminal complaint.

Diamond, who lives in Port Washington, told the officer he accidentally stabbed the man while trying to protect Schultz during a heated confrontation at the bar, according to the complaint. Other witnesses told police the fight broke out after Diamond’s fiancée got upset over people taking pictures, the complaint said.
