Berron's attorney J.D. Obenberger says Berron wasn't given a reason for the denial, but the Sun-Times reports that court records show he has been convicted of misdemeanor charges of resisting a police officer and criminal damage to property.

Berron claims that denying his application without letting him present his case to the licensing board is a violation of his right to due process.
