The recent closure of the Chesterfield License Office has now created long wait times and simmering tempers at the license office in nearby Ballwin.
"It can get pretty crowded," says Mark Miles of Dogs On Duty, the non-profit that runs the Ballwin office. "We've had some lines here out the door."
In one incident in July, Ballwin police say an angry customer had returned to the Ballwin office with a gun that was holstered. Police were called but determined that no laws were broken.
In Missouri, license offices are generally not run by the state but are privately contracted.
The Missouri Department of Revenue says there was a contractual issue that closed the Chesterfield office in July.
A new contract has been awarded by the state for the Chesterfield office but it may be as long as 60 days before it is reopened.
