Paula Broadwell’s driver’s license found in area park

Law enforcement authorities notified the FBI after a driver’s license belonging to the biographer involved in an affair with former CIA Director David Petraeus was found in a District park on Monday, officials said.

A jogger discovered the North Carolina state license of Paula Broadwell in Rock Creek Park and later turned the card into Maryland-National Capital Park Police, said Lt. Bill Kellogg, a Park Police spokesman.

It was not clear to Park Police officials exactly where the license was found or how long it had been missing.

Park Police officials alerted officials at the FBI, who are investigating Broadwell in a probe that led the former top spy official to resign last week. The police intend to keep the license for 90 days unless Broadwell claims it, Kellogg said.

News of the misplaced license was first reported by US News and World Report.
