Dustin Diamond Sued For Back Property Taxes, Has Car Repossesed

by at . Comments

Former actor and current sex tape sellout Dustin Diamond is being sued for more than $21,000 in unpaid property taxes and had his car repossessed.

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

The 32-year-old loser, who found fame playing dorky Samuel “Screech” Powers on the TV hit Saved By The Bell, seems to have hit financial hard times.

He was sued by Ford Motor Credit Company in November 2008 for $544, which ultimately resulted in the repossession of his 2005 Ford Expedition.

Way to buy a car you can't afford, Screech. Did Mr. Belding teach you nothing? Moreover, the Wisconsin Department of Revenue is suing him for $21,015.62.

That's the amount of unpaid taxes he owes on his house in Port Washington, Wisc. He was also hit with a small claim by Wisconsin Electric Power Company.

Oh, and there's that issue with the IRS.

After Saved By The Bell ended in 2000, Dustin Diamond appeared in a few reality shows, including The Weakest Link, Celebrity Boxing 2 and Celebrity Fit Club.

Lame, but innocent enough. Things too a really dirty turn in 2006.

That's when he infamously starred in the revolving sex tape tape Screeched, a.k.a. Saved By The Smell, which showed him defiling a pair of local women.

Diamond - who has also done stints as a stand-up comic – claimed the tape was leaked as a mistake but his manager conceded he hoped it'd his profile.

He's also coming out with Behind the Bell, a behind-the-scenes tell-all about the Saved By the Bell cast. Apparently it's not being pre-ordered too much.

Worst of all, Behind the Bell got him uninvited from the Saved By the Bell reunion. That's a bigger insult than anything the IRS could possibly to do him.
