The former girlfriend of NASCAR driver Kurt Busch was charged Tuesday with stealing from a military charity she led.
Court documents don’t say how much prosecutors believe Patricia Driscoll took from the District of Columbia-based Armed Forces Foundation, whose mission is to support service members, veterans and their families.
