ORLANDO, Florida (CNN) -- A NASA astronaut was arrested Monday on battery and attempted kidnapping charges after allegedly trying to subdue a romantic rival with pepper spray and abduct her from a parking lot at Orlando International Airport, police said.
Navy Capt. Lisa Marie Nowak, who flew her first space shuttle mission as a mission specialist aboard Discovery in July, and Colleen Shipman were both reported to be "in a relationship" with astronaut Bill Oefelein, a Navy commander, according to a police report of the incident.
Nowak, 43, has been charged with battery, attempted kidnapping, attempted burglary to a vehicle and destruction of evidence. Police have recommended Nowak be held without bond.
According to the report, she told police that her relationship with Oefelein was "more than a working relationship but less than a romantic relationship."
Nowak drove from Houston, Texas, to Orlando to meet Shipman, who was flying the same route, to talk with the woman about her alleged relationship with Oefelein, the report said.
Shipman is an engineer assigned to the 45th Launch Support Squadron at Patrick Air Force Base, near the Kennedy Space Center.

Shipman told police that she arrived at the airport about 1 a.m. but had to wait two hours for her luggage to arrive.
Once she retrieved her bags, she said she took a bus to the lot where her car was parked, noticing a woman wearing a trench coat who appeared to be following her.
Fearing for her safety, Shipman quickly stepped into her car, the police report said, adding that she reported hearing "running footsteps" behind her.
Shipman closed and locked her car door as Nowak slapped the window of the car and tried to open the car door, the report said.
Nowak told Shipman her ride had not arrived and asked for help, but Shipman refused, saying she would send help instead. When Nowak complained she couldn't hear Shipman and started to cry, Shipman opened her car window "about 2 inches" -- and Nowak sprayed pepper spray into the car, police said.

Shipman, her eyes burning, drove to a toll booth in the lot to summonpolice. An officer went to the bus stop and found Nowak, who was wearing a different coat, the report said. Approaching the stop, the officer observed Nowak put some items into a trash can, the report said.
Those items included a wig and a plastic bag containing a carbon dioxide-powered BB pistol, the report said.
Inside a bag Nowak was carrying, the officer found a tan trench coat, a new steel mallet, a new folding knife with a 4-inch blade, 3 to 4 feet of rubber tubing, large plastic garbage bags and about $600 in cash, the report said.
Nowak acknowledged details of Shipman's allegations, according to the police report, and permitted a search of her car.
Inside the car, police found a half-dozen latex gloves, MapQuest directions from Houston to Orlando International Airport, e-mails from Shipman to Oefelein, diapers that Nowak said she used to eliminate stops along the highway, a letter indicating how much she loved Oefelein and directions to Shipman's home address in Florida, the report said.
Asked about the BB pistol, Nowak told police it "was going to be used to entice Ms. Shipman to talk with her," the report said.
"Mrs. Nowak stated that she was not trying to cause any bodily harm to Ms. Shipman and that she only wanted to scare Ms. Shipman into talking with her," the police report said.
Nowak is married with three children and has been an astronaut since 1996.
Oefelein, 41, was the pilot of the last shuttle mission, also aboard Discovery, which flew in December.
Johnson Space Center spokeswoman Eileen Hawley said that Oefelein would not make any comments through NASA at this time. To her knowledge, no one from NASA had spoken with Nowak yet, she said.
Two astronauts, Navy Capt. Chris Ferguson and retired Air Force Col. Steve Lindsey, have gone to Florida to establish contact with Nowak, Hawley said, adding that her status as an active-duty astronaut remains unchanged.
Lindsey, the chief astronaut, was the commander of Nowak's shuttle flight.

Can you imagine how much it must suck to be this psycho's husband? First off, no matter what he does, he's got the bitch job. Oh, you're a lumberjack, eh? Well, since your wife is an ASTRONAUT, I guess that makes you the bitch. So he's obviously had to come to grips with that aspect of his life. But now, on top of all that, he finds out that she's at least been pining over (and at most has been f#cking) Captain America, has made a desperate and stupid cross country trip to murder another women, was jailed for her failed attempt at pre-meditated murder, has destroyed her career, and will ruin him with legal fees, and EVERYBODY ON EARTH KNOWS ABOUT IT.

Poor bastard. I at least hope he's banging a stewardess or something.

And I figure after all this, if he ever gets his hands on this bitch, she won't need a rocket to achieve orbit. :$2500:

Now NASA says they are going to review criteria for screening astronauts
ROFL
http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/02/07/astronaut.arrested/index.html

ORLANDO, Florida (CNN) -- NASA officials will initiate a review of ongoing psychological assessments for admittance to the corps, following the recent legal issues involving astronaut Lisa Nowak, Shana Dale, NASA deputy administrator of public affairs said Wednesday.
NASA will review criteria for screening astronauts for the program and how often they are evaluated throughout their career. They also will review procedures to determine any changes that need to be made.
Astronaut Nowak was taken to the Johnson Space Center in Houston Wednesday for a medical evaluation, which would also include a psychological evaluation, NASA said.
Nowak flew home to Houston Wednesday morning, a day after she appeared in court in Orlando, Florida, to face charges including the attempted murder of a romantic rival.
NASA said she went straight from the airport in Houston to the Johnson Space Center. "She's not staying here. She's leaving with her family," a NASA spokeswoman said, according to The Associated Press.
As friends and strangers tried to imagine what could have caused her apparent meltdown, a few clues emerged.
A family statement said Nowak had recently separated from her husband of 19 years, who works at NASA Mission Control. They have a teenage son and young twin daughters.
The AP reported that there had been signs of problems before Nowak's arrest. In November, police were called to Nowak's home near the Johnson Space Center after a neighbor reported hearing the sounds of dishes being thrown inside, AP reported.
Nowak, a Navy captain, is accused of accosting Air Force Capt. Colleen Shipman, 30, in the parking lot of Orlando International Airport early Monday and attacking her with pepper spray. She told police she only wanted to talk with Shipman. (Full story (http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/02/06/astronaut.arrested/index.html))
Nowak and Shipman were both "in a relationship" with Navy Cmdr. Bill Oefelein, another astronaut, according to a police report of the incident.
Nowak told police her relationship with Oefelein was "more than a working relationship and less than a romantic relationship."
Shipman has filed for a restraining order on Nowak in Brevard County, Florida, where Shipman lives and works, according to a copy of the order on the county's Web site.
In the paperwork for the order, Shipman said that Nowak had been stalking her for the past two months.
Her handwritten petition says she has known Nowak since Monday at "approx 0345" and adds Nowak is an "acquaintance of boyfriend." (Read Shipman's petition (http://i.a.cnn.net/cnn/2007/images/02/06/injunction.pdf))
A hearing for the order is scheduled for February 20.
Friend: Nowak helped my son

Jonathan Clark, a friend of Nowak and her husband, appearing on CNN's American Morning, called Nowak "a wonderful, good, caring person" who "was a mother before she was an astronaut."
Clark is a former NASA flight surgeon whose wife, Laurel Clark, was among the astronauts killed in the Columbia disaster in 2003.
Nowak helped his son, Ian, cope with the anguish of losing his mother, Clark said.
"Lisa just stepped right in there with us, obviously my son losing his mom had this tremendous void in his life," Clark said. "It was just a wonderful thing, you could just see a smile on his face whenever he was around her."
"All of the female astronauts who are moms have a common bond there," Clark said. "This is a high-risk endeavor and they're almost torn between being a mom and being a career astronaut."
Nowak, who has been an astronaut since 1996, flew her first shuttle mission last July, serving as a mission specialist aboard the Discovery. She and crewmate Stephanie Wilson were known as "the robochicks" because of their work with the shuttle's robotic arm, AP reported.
Grounded

NASA grounded Nowak for 30 days on Tuesday.
Michael Coats, director of NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, issued a statement saying Nowak "is officially on 30-day leave and has been removed from flight status and all mission-related activities."
"We are deeply saddened by this tragic event. The charges against Lisa Nowak are serious ones that must be decided by the judicial system," the statement said. (Watch how police say a NASA love triangle went awry (javascript:cnnVideo('play','/video/us/2007/02/06/obrien.astronaut.love.triangle.affl','2007/02/20');) http://i.a.cnn.net/cnn/.element/img/1.5/main/icon_video.gif (javascript:cnnVideo('play','/video/us/2007/02/06/obrien.astronaut.love.triangle.affl','2007/02/20');))
A NASA spokeswoman said Wednesday that Oefelein had flown to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and was cooperating with investigators.
Family shocked

Nowak's family released their statement from their home in Rockville, Maryland.
"Lisa is an extremely caring and dedicated mother to her three children. She has been married for 19 years, although she and her husband had separated a few weeks ago," the statement said.
"Considering both her personal and professional life, these alleged events are completely out of character and have come as a tremendous shock to our family," the statement said.
"We hope that the public will keep an open mind about what the facts will eventually show and that the legal system will be allowed to run its course."
