New Canaan Man Arrested At General Assembly Meeting

Michael Nowacki was charged with interference after exceeding his three-minute speaking limit, according to the Connecticut Post.

A New Canaan man was arrested in Hartford by Capitol Police on Thursday after exceeding his three-minute limit while addressing the General Assembly at a Judiciary Committee meeting, according to the Connecticut Post.

Michael Nowacki of Lost District Drive was charged with interference with the General Assembly after he refused to heed a warning by Rep. Gerald Fox III (D-Stamford) that he was exceeding the limit and continued to speak.

Nowacki was on charges of violating a protective order on June 16, 2010 after he reportedly sent an email to his ex-wife, which he was prohibited from doing under the order. Nowacki represented himself at the trial and, at times, cross examined himself and referred to himself in the third person.

Mr. Nowacki: it's correct, isn't it, that you have no formal legal training or legal experience of any kind? You sold advertising for a living, correct? And now, you announce legal opinions on civil practice, criminal law, constitutional law, racketeer influenced corrupt Organization Act, civil rights law, evidence, family law, statutory interpretation, etc. What is the basis for any qualifications you have to offer opinions on these matters? So far, no judge has agreed with you, correct?

Mr. Nowacki: There was a protective order issued against you, protecting your wife. Correct? That protective order prohibited any communications, correct? You sent an email to her, correct? And you argued that you sent it inadvertently, correct? Why was the protective order issued in the first place? Why did the Court deny you joint custody of your children? What was the basis in your behavior? Did you, in fact, do the things the court found that you did?

So sorry. I just realized that. You were sentenced to 30 days in jail because you refused a judge's order to get a psychiatric exam, correct? In Aprlil 2011?
