A Saginaw County man was 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.


The arrest took place on Adams' 59th birthday.


A message seeking comment was left Tuesday with Adams' lawyer.


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


Adams is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Wednesday.
