Astronaut Charged With Kidnapping Attempt

Navy Captain Lisa Nowak
According to a wire service report, U.S. Astronaut and Navy Captain Lisa Nowak has been charged with attempted kidnapping and battery. This because of some sort of delusional love tryst between another woman and U.S. Astronaut William Oefelein.

When she found out that Shipman was flying to Orlando from Houston, Nowak decided to confront her, according to the arrest affidavit. Nowak raced from Houston to Orlando wearing diapers so she wouldn't have to stop to urinate, authorities said.

Nowak was seen throwing away a wig, pellet gun, and is accused of spraying mace or something of the sort into Colleen Shipman's vehicle during the kidnap attempt.

This is truly bizarre, but I suppose not all that unexpected. Astronauts go through intense physical and psychological training in the corps and supposedly the people who can't handle it are washed out. That doesn't mean however that ones mind can't lose its grip on reality after passing all of these tests, and ones job isn't a guarantee that they are well balanced mentally. Cops have become murderers before, and these things tend to happen.

Still, how crazy is that?
