    The Department of Public Safety (DPS) Driver License Center in Plano will remain closed for safety after it was discovered the building’s foundation shifted over the weekend. There are now concerns about the structural integrity of the building.

    “For the safety of our customers and employees, the decision was made to close the office temporarily until repairs, which are currently underway, can be completed,” DPS spokesperson Lonny Haschel said.

    Plano customers are asked visit the Carrollton Driver License Mega Center at 4600 Texas 121 or Garland Driver License Mega Center at 4445 Saturn Road Suite A.

    Haschel said employees from the Plano location have been temporarily reassigned to the other locations to help with any overflow from rerouted customers.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.

    State troopers were seen patrolling the congested parking lots at the Carrollton location to make sure there is no chaos from increased customers.

    DPS reminds that customers can also go online or call 1-866-DL-RENEW to determine if their transaction — including the renewal of a Texas DL or identification card or an address change — can actually be handled online, by phone or by mail.
