ORLANDO, Fla. — Former astronaut Lisa Nowak can remove an electronic monitoring bracelet from her ankle while she awaits trial on charges she attacked a
romantic rival, a judge ruled Thursday.
Nowak had argued that the bracelet was expensive, bulky and uncomfortable. Judge Marc L. Lubet said that those claims did not matter, but that Nowak had behaved well enough over the past seven months to remove the device.
Watch out for a crazy astronaut wearing an adult diaper with pepper spray. Nowak has been released of her obligation to wear her ankle bracelet.
