Former TV pitchman "Super Dell" Schanze allegedly won't let federal officers inspect his home for firearms, ammunition and other dangerous items.

So now he has a court date in front of the same federal judge who he interrupted recently to complain that firearm restrictions she placed on another defendant were "totally unconstitutional."

Schanze, 45, former owner of the now defunct Totally Awesome Computers, is facing federal misdemeanor charges for allegedly harassing wildlife. But he has not allowed officers access to his home to see whether he complied with a judge's directive that allowed him out of jail before trial on the condition he not possess weapons and ammunition and remove them from his home.

Schanze, a passionate gun-rights advocate, failed to comply with conditions of his release because officers have been unable to inspect his home, pretrial officer David Filippi Jr. said in a petition to the court.

U.S. District Court Magistrate Brooke Wells set a hearing for Dec. 30, at which she could order Schanze to jail for failing to comply with her order or take other measures to ensure compliance.

Schanze's court-appointed attorney did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

Two weeks ago, Schanze was sitting in the front row of the public section of a federal courtroom in Salt Lake City waiting for his first appearance on the wildlife charges while a court hearing was in progress in another case.

Wells had just told a man with a lengthy arrest record on drug charges, and who was in court for alleged possession of stolen ammunition, that she would release him from custody pending his trial, but he had to agree not to possess dangerous weapons or ammunition. If he was going to live with his father as planned, then the father also had to remove those items from his home, Wells said.

That prompted Schanze to stand up and declare, "Your honor that's totally unconstitutional."

Wells told Schanze to sit down and be quiet, but he persisted and was handcuffed and removed from the courtroom. He was held for several hours before he agreed to abide by Wells' weapons order in his own case.

Schanze has pleaded not guilty to knowingly using an aircraft to harass wildlife and pursuing a migratory bird — a barn owl — from his motorized paraglider near Utah Lake in 2011, incidents that showed up on videos posted on YouTube.

A one-day jury trial is set for Feb. 17.
