Two separate incidents at Spencer's Department of Motor Vehicle office ended with police being called and arrests made following outbursts and a broken door, according to Spencer Newspapers.

Kimberly D. Smith, 44, of Spencer, came to the DMV to renew her vehicle registration. According to the complaint, when the clerk advised her that the registration could not be renewed because her vehicle had been impounded and her license suspended, she got irate.

Smith allegedly said she could "blow-up all the f---ing federal buildings and kill everyone in them."

Reportedly before Smith departed, she allegedly ask the clerk if she knew "what a pistol tasted like."

The criminal complaint said the office was filled with customers hearing the threats.

Spencer Police arrested Smith in the office, charging her with willful disruption of government process.

She was taken before a magistrate where she posted $500 bond.

Three days later, police got called to the DMV again.

Jonathan C. Taylor, 25, of Jackson County, came with his girlfriend and got disturbed after being advised he needed a birth certificate.

The complaint said he began to shout profanities, and asked to speak to a supervisor. Following more disruptions, he allegedly left the office, pushing or slamimg a door so hard it apparently fell apart.

Spencer Newspapers said city workers said the repair would be about $350.

Spencer Police filed charges against Taylor, with a warrant to be served on him in Jackson County.
