An astronaut was arrested for attempting to kidnap and murder a woman with whom she was competing for the romantic interest of a man.
"[She] was carrying a steel mallet, a knife, rubber gloves and trash bags when she tried to kidnap her alleged victim."
Alright, so that's insane. And terrible.
But...she never actually got around to kidnapping this other woman, and certainly didn't kill her, so it's all speculative, at best. Her lawyer said "the charge of attempted murder is ridiculous."
So did they have to interrupt Ellen so that NASA (who can't comment on the investigation) can say they'll be handing over her psychological profiles to the police?
