Los Angeles: Former "Saved by the Bell" actor Dustin Diamond has been found not guilty of a felony in his three-day stabbing trial.

According to the verdict, a Wisconsin jury convicted Dustin of two misdemeanours but cleared him of the most serious felony charge, reported Ace Showbiz.

The 38-year-old actor was found not guilty in the first count of reckless endangerment stemming from a bar fight back in December.

Meanwhile, he was found guilty of carrying concealed weapon and of disorderly conduct.

Dustin's lawyer Thomas Alberti said, "We're happy with the results, we think that justice has been done. The jury did a good job."

The verdict came just hours after the former child actor testified in court that he didn't intentionally stab Casey Smet during the altercation. He said he was trying to protect his fiancee Amanda Schultz.

Dustin admitted that he did have a pocket knife, but he only showed it to a group of people fighting with his fiancee.
