Former Saved By the Bell star Dustin Diamond is back behind bars in Wisconsin after an official says he violated the terms of his parole, though it’s unclear at this point how he violated them.

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

The lawyer representing Diamond in that case wasn’t immediately available for comment.

Diamond says his previous time behind bars isn’t like “what you see on TV.”

Diamond said in an interview with Extra‘s Mario Lopez one week ago that jail was “daunting” and “scary,” but he says “you can get in and out unscathed” if you follow the rules.

WITI-TV reports Diamond served three months of a four-month term.
