WASHINGTON -- Count this as one of the more random details from the continuing scandal that forced David Petreaus, a retired four-star Army general, to resign as director of the CIA late last week: The drivers license of Paula Broadwell, the biographer and reserve Army officer Petraeus is accused of having an extra-marital affair with, was found in Rock Creek Park.

A Maryland National Capital Park Police spokesman confirmed that a jogger found a North Carolina license in Rock Creek Park belonging to Paula Broadwell. Park Police planned to hold it for 90 days, per policy, and then send it back to the North Carolina Department of Transportation. ...

Broadwell's attorney, Robert F. Muse, confirmed that Broadwell, a North Carolina resident, lost her driver's license in the park.

Broadwell's whereabouts since the scandal broke has been something of a mystery.

FBI agents searched her Charlotte, N.C., home on Monday as part of the ongoing investigation into the unfolding Petreaus situation.

UPDATE, 9:10 a.m., Wednesday: As Washington City Paper reports, it appears that Broadwell is staying at her brother's house in D.C.'s Mount Pleasant neighborhood.

UPDATE, 1:30 p.m., Wednesday Gazette.net reports that Broadwell hasn't yet claimed the license found in Rock Creek Park:

Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning police still have the North Carolina driver’s license belonging to Paula Broadwell, the woman accused of having an affair with former CIA Director David Petraeus.

“We still have it and she has been contacted,” Park Police Interim Chief Antonio DeVaul told The Gazette Wednesday.
