No Diaper Dandy: Attorney Calls Nowak Detail "Fabrication"

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Lisa Nowak's lawyer is disputing one of the more bizarre details to emerge from the NASA love triangle case.

Donald Lykkebak says the former astronaut didn't wear diapers during her 950-mile road trip from Houston to Orlando to confront a romantic rival. Lykkebak has filed motions to suppress evidence in Nowak's criminal case and calls the diapers story "an absolute fabrication."

The police report filed after Nowak's arrest in February says Nowak told police she didn't want to stop and use the restroom when asked about the diapers.

Her lawyer says Nowak's family used them when Houston was evacuated in 2005 during Hurricane Rita.

The judge wants Lykkebak to present more case law supporting his argument before he would issue a ruling.

Nowak is charged with attempted kidnapping, battery and burglary with assault. She has pleaded not guilty and her trial is set for September.

The defense attorney also asked to have transcript of the police interview sealed from the public, contending the media would use it for entertainment value and taint potential jurors.
