Michigan Man Jailed, Charged With Talking Too Long at Meeting

A Michigan man has been arrested after authorities say he refused to stop talking past a three-minute time limit for public comment at a township board meeting.

Mark A. Adams was arraigned Friday in Saginaw District Court on a felony charge of resisting and obstructing a police officer and a misdemeanor count of disturbing the peace.

Adams was arrested at the March 4 meeting by three Bridgeport Township police officers. Authorities say he refused to stop talking when township officials told him to do so.

Adams' lawyer, Tom Frank, said Tuesday he had no comment.

The resisting and obstructing charge carries a maximum penalty of two years behind bars.

Adams is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Wednesday.
