The actor was convicted of two disorderly conduct misdemeanours and a count of carrying a concealed weapon in June (15), after pulling a knife on Casey Smet during a fight on Christmas Day (25Dec14).

He was scheduled to report to jail to begin his four-month sentence in June, but his lawyer filed a motion to delay the punishment, so the 38 year old could challenge the decision and his request was granted.

However, Diamond has now withdrawn his appeal and will report to jail on 15 January (16).
