"A NASA astronaut charged with attempting to kidnap a romantic rival in a love triangle with another astronaut was allowed to go free on bail Tuesday on the condition that she not contact the alleged victim."
"Lisa Marie Nowak drove more than 12 hours from Texas to meet the 1 a.m. flight of a younger woman who had also been seeing the astronaut Nowak pined for...Nowak -- who was a mission specialist on a Space Shuttle Discovery flight last summer -- was wearing a trench coat and wig and had a knife, BB pistol, and latex gloves in her car, reports show. They also found diapers, which Nowak said she used so she wouldn't have to stop on the 1,000-mile drive. Reports show that after U.S. Air Force Capt. Colleen Shipman's flight arrived, Nowak followed her to the airport's Blue Lot for long-term parking, tried to get into Shipman's car and then doused her with pepper spray."
She was charged with:
- attempted kidnapping
- attempted vehicle burglary with battery
The BB pistol was pretty funny to read along with the diapers, but she also had "A steel mallet, several feet of rubber tubing and hand-written directions to Shipman's home."
You gotta read the full story here. Seriously, this is like the stuff that television writers make up. I bet this will be on Law & Order SVU soon.
By the way, she reminds me of the runaway bride a little...
Don't mess with her man!
