A NASA astronaut charged with pepper-spraying and trying to kidnap a romantic rival was granted bail Tuesday, but her release was delayed after police announced they were filing an attempted murder charge against her, a corrections department spokesman said.
Astronaut Charged with Attempted Kidnapping
A NASA astronaut who drove hundreds of miles to confront a romantic rival, wearing diapers on the journey so that she would not have to stop to use the restroom, appeared in court today facing charges that included attempted kidnapping, and was ordered released on $15,500 bond.When's the last time this kind of romantic triangle played out in the media? While the situation itself is very serious, still....you can't pass up fresh territory like Astronauts Gone Wild without doing something.
I mean, this sounds like the plot of the lost episode of "I Dream of Jeannie", where Jeannie's evil black-haired sister attempts to kill her with a magical BB gun to win Major Nelson's affections...of course Roger Healy accidently gets in the way, Dr. Bellows witnesses something he wasn't supposed to and hilarity ensues.
