SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Authorities say a former TV pitchman in Utah accused of kicking an owl has obeyed a court order and allowed his home to be searched for weapons.

Federal prosecutors said that Dell “Super Dell” Schanze has complied with a requirement not to possess guns as a condition of his release before trial. A judge canceled a hearing set for Thursday morning.

Schanze was summoned to court last week after authorities said he hadn’t answered phone calls from agents who wanted to schedule the search, a common requirement in federal cases. He denied that allegation, but called the search illegal and unconstitutional.

Federal prosecutors say the 45-year-old Schanze kicked the bird while riding his motorized paraglider. He has pleaded not guilty to charges involving harassing wildlife and pursuing a migratory bird.
