From Mike Schneider at the Associated Press:
An astronaut drove 900 miles and donned a disguise to confront a woman she believed was her rival for the affections of a space shuttle pilot, police said. She was arrested Monday and charged with attempted kidnapping and other counts.Er, that's right: a female Navy Captain is charged with kidnapping...
The whole thing is just bizarre. Captain Nowak is married; she had "more than a working relationship, but less than a romantic relationship" with a fellow astronaut, Navy Commander William Oefelein.
I love domestic incidents.
Captain Nowak allegedly stalked Colleen Shipman and attacked her at a parking lot at the Orlando airport.
