Nowak is charged with attempted kidnapping, battery and burglary with assault. She has pleaded not guilty and is free on bond.
Authorities say Nowak drove from the Houston area, stalked Colleen Shipman at an Orlando airport, tried to get into her car, then attacked her with pepper spray.
Shipman, the girlfriend of former space shuttle pilot Bill Oefelein, was able to drive away.
