He's since found work as a standup comedian. He also was known for selling T-shirts in 2006 in an effort to save his house from foreclosure. He made news again recently following his Dec. 26, 2014, arrest in Port Washington, Wisconsin, after a bar altercation in which a man was stabbed. Diamond, seen here in court on Dec. 29, 2014, with his fiancée Amanda Schutz, who was also arrested in the incident, has told police he accidentally stabbed the man while defending Schutz. He faces trial in late May on charges of felony second-degree recklessly endangering safety along with two misdemeanors, disorderly conduct and carrying a concealed weapon.
