(AP) — Jail time is on hold for former “Saved by the Bell” actor Dustin Diamond while he appeals his sentence for an altercation at a bar in Wisconsin. Diamond was supposed to begin serving a four-month sentence last weekend at county jail north of Milwaukee. On Thursday, a judge in Ozaukee County Circuit Court stayed Diamond’s sentence pending his appeal. Diamond’s attorney, Thomas Alberti, says it could take as long as two years for the case to be considered, depending on the appellate docket. The 38-year-old Diamond played Screech on the popular 1990s TV show. Diamond was recently convicted of carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct, but was cleared on a felony charge. Diamond testified he was trying to protect his girlfriend when he pulled out a pocketknife at the Port Washington bar last Christmas Day.

According to the criminal complaint, 35-year-old Kane A. Kramer is also charged with aggravated battery, disorderly conduct, and three charges of pointing a firearm at another person.

According to the complaint, Kramer allegedly had gotten into an altercation with a couple from a campsite adjoining his. He had fired a gun three times: one in the air, one in the ground, and shot the victim in the leg. He then fled the scene. Kramer was taken into custody in Wisconsin Dells and a firearm was recovered a short distance from the campground. He was then transported to the Juneau County Jail. The complaint said a Wisconsin Dells officer stated that without questioning, Kramer said he had shot someone.

Court records show a $50,000 cash bond was set for Kramer and he has a court appearance set for July 22.

The student leaders say a 2-day strike by bus drivers has impacted tens of thousands of students who need the bus to get to summer classes. In a letter to the transit system and drivers, the student government organizations say missing multiple days of a shorter summer class can be costly. And for some students it may be the last class they need to graduate. Failure could result in another semester of school. A strike by 750 members of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 998 began early Wednesday. The union says drivers plan to return to work Saturday.

(AP) — Republicans hope to kick-start the stalled state budget by voting on a transportation plan that cuts $500 million for road projects and reduces taxes for married couples. The Joint Finance Committee planned to finish its work on the budget Thursday. It was passing on trying to reach agreement on what to do about the state’s prevailing wage law and a $500 million financing plan for a new Milwaukee Bucks arena. Those are expected to be voted on next week outside of the budget, but some conservative Republican senators say they will not back the two-year spending plan if a repeal of the prevailing wage isn’t included. The budget has been stalled for five weeks as Republicans have negotiated among themselves to reach a deal.
