Last December, Dustin Diamond — aka Screech from Saved by the Bell — was arrested for stabbing someone during a bar fight.
During a court appearance related to the charges he’s facing, it has been revealed that on the same night of the altercation, he threatened to stab a man — because he failed to drink a Smirnoff Ice when the 37-year-old actor “iced” him.

District attorney Adam Gerol brought up this bizarre fact during a March 19 trial related to Dustin’s charges.
The ‘Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel’ reports that Dustin approached a man with a Smirnoff Ice and announced, "You've been iced. Get on your knees and drink this."
The man then reportedly declined to participate, at which point Screech Dustin said something to effect of "Don't make me stab someone on Christmas."
Of course, he then went on to stab someone else on Christmas because bah, humbug.

For those of you who were lucky enough not to be in college in the early 2010s — or those who don’t know any post-grad frat boys who don’t realize they’re supposed to behave like adults — “icing” is a drinking game in which “the icer” (in this case, Dustin) presents another person (“the icee”) with a Smirnoff Ice. When presented with the drink, the icee must drop to one knee and chug the entire thing unless he/she has a Smirnoff ice on him/her.
Where’s Mr. Belding when you need him? Or, like, any kind of adult supervision?
