TMZ Report: Dustin Diamond Violated Probation by Failing a Drug Test

Dustin Diamond violated his probation by failing a drug test, according to TMZ. 

TMZ is reporting Screech's test came back positive for oxycodone. 

Diamond allegedly told his parole officer he had recently taken a painkiller. 

Diamond was detained on a probation violation at the end of May. 

Diamond was sentenced to four months in jail for stabbing a man during a Christmas Day 2014 altercation at a bar in Port Washington.  He served three months of the sentence.

A probation hold occurs when the offender's probation agent believes he or she has not complied with the terms of their probation. People on probation hold are generally held in county facilities while the agent completes a violation investigation.

If the incident that led to the violation investigation is serious enough, the offender -- in this case Diamond -- could have their parole revoked.

No new charges have been filed against Diamond, and no other information is available at this time, according to the jail.
