Dustin appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in 2013.

A judge has ordered that Dustin stand trial after deciding there was enough evidence available for one to take place, although Dustin's lawyer pointed out no witnesses saw Dustin stabbing the man.

Dustin has been charged with reckless endangerment, possession of a switchblade and carrying a concealed weapon.

The 37-year-old has told police he was trying to defend his fiancée, who was embroiled in a row with another woman.

His lawyer previously said: "[Dustin] gets that when something like this happens, the police get involved and the court figures it out... He knows there is a process in this country and in the end he will be exonerated."
