According to the charging affidavit filed by Orlando police, NASA astronaut Lisa Novak was not trying to cause any bodily harm to fellow astronaut Colleen Shipman when she approached her at the Orlando International Airport but merely "wanted to scare her into talking with her." Orlando Police Department spokesperson Sergeant Barbara Jones, however, disagreed, telling the online edition of the London Times that, “If you were just going to talk to someone, I don’t know that you would need a wig, a trench coat, an air cartridge BB gun and pepper spray.”
Wow. That Sergeant Jones must a real giggle to chew the fat with. I mean, how can you say you've truly had a meaningful conversation unless at some point during the discussion someone gets maced in the face and attacked with a steel mallet and a four-foot length rubber tubing?
