Ex-Astronaut Lisa Nowak Seeks to Have Charges Dropped

An ex-astronaut accused of driving 1,000 miles to confront a romantic rival has asked a judge to dismiss some of the charges against her because she claims prosecutors failed to disclose evidence.

An attorney for Lisa Nowak filed a motion Monday seeking sanctions against prosecutors and police officers. The motion says they failed to turn over a report that raises questions about whether Nowak's rival, Colleen Shipman, was pepper-sprayed during the confrontation more than two years ago.

Nowak was charged with attempted kidnapping, burglary and battery with assault. She was dismissed from the astronaut corps after her arrest.

A spokeswoman for the State Attorney's Office in Orlando didn't return a phone call after business hours.
