Nowak, 43, is charged with attempted kidnapping, battery, attempted vehicle burglary with battery and destruction of evidence. Police considered her such a danger that they requested she be held without bail in the Orange County Jail, reports show.

Nowak -- who was a mission specialist on a Discovery launch last summer --
was wearing a trench coat and wig and had a knife, BB pistol, and latex gloves in her car, reports show.
They also found diapers, which Nowak said she used so she wouldn't have to stop on the 1,000-mile drive

and they are subjected to life's little problems too
and, as you may have guessed, they can react to these problems in literally any way, just like the rest of us
i am not condoning this course of action, i am just pointing out that, just because she is an astronaut, doesn't make her all high-and-mighty enough to not do these kinds of things...

How did she slip through? Are these tests not accurate?
As far as the drug allegations, I would have to ask:
Doesnt NASA have drug tests, or is it just McDonalds that wants clean employees?
