Saved by the Bell star Dustin Diamond just can't catch a break. The troubled former child actor was arrested for failing a drug test, a violation of his parole.
Dustin, 39, was detained May 25 for taking a prescription painkiller without permission, according to court records released June 10. His probation officer reported finding oxycodone in his urine.
Dustin explained he'd taken the drug for a toothache but admitted he didn't know what it was because it was from an old prescription, the court papers say.

He landed in the slammer but was released two days later, according to TMZ.
