Kicker – Mistaken identity

MYRNA BROWN, HOST: Driver’s license photos aren’t always flattering.

But a Tennessee woman was particularly shocked when she received her license this week. 

The photo looked nothing like her. It looked nothing like anyone.

Jane Dodd told WKRN news…

DODD: The lady at the DMV did not really believe me. And then she looked it up in the system and she was like, oh, I need to go get my manager for this.

The image on her license was a picture of an empty chair. 

The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security said the photo of the blue chair was just a mistake and somehow got saved to her file. 

Dodd took it in stride.

DODD: It was fun. It was a funny situation. It kind of lightened the mood up a little bit since everything’s been weird.
