ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Former astronaut Lisa Nowak wants a Florida judge to let her remove her tracking ankle bracelet as she awaits trial.
Nowak is accused of attacking a romantic rival for the affections of a now-ex astronaut.
She's pleaded not guilty to attempted kidnapping, battery and burglary with assault over a February attack on another woman at Orlando International Airport.
Authorities believe Nowak drove from Houston to Orlando.
Nowak is now assigned to Naval Air Station Corpus Christi.
The court filing says Nowak's bracelet is an unnecessary and excessive expense.
She's paying $105 per week for it as a condition of release.
Nowak also says the device interferes with her exercise, which is required for a Navy officer, and her ability to drive, fly on commercial planes and monitor her children in the pool.
Prosecutors had no immediate comment.
