CHARLOTTE, N.C. —

There have been some sightings in Dilworth of the woman linked to former CIA director David Petraeus but no new information.

Paula Broadwell and her husband, Dr. Scott Broadwell, left their home early Monday morning with their two children but said nothing to reporters and photographers waiting outside.

Channel 9's legal analyst said we should not be surprised.

"By and large, it's not a time to be getting out there and making a lot of public statements," said attorney Tony Scheer. He said he would advise Broadwell not to say anything while the FBI is still looking at all of the documents they carried out of the Broadwell house last week, including what may be some classified documents.

But Scheer said that doesn't mean that Broadwell will necessarily be facing charges in the case.   

"It's still not clear whether it's a substantive violation, and way, way, way too early to (be) speculating about whether she's going to have some legal trouble down the road," Scheer said.

Scott Broadwell said Sunday that they would say something soon, but that statement hadn't come as of late Monday and the frustration of living with photographers and reporters camped out at their home may have gotten to Paula Broadwell.

Monday afternoon, she appeared to jab at a photographer with her car door, forcing the photographer's camera into her forehead -- causing a small cut.
