"By the time the bank guard closed the doors, a riot had erupted due to the long lines and shortage of telllers."
Say, what's wrong with the "due to" here? Why should "as a result of" be replaced in this place? Can I use "because of" instead?

Any suggestions about the proper use of the three (due to, as result of and because of)? When to use which?
Yep, I've read the threads and they've proven to be very helpful.
So "because of" acts as an adverb and "due to" acts as an adjective... That means that my original sentence: "By the time the bank guard closed the doors, a riot had erupted due to the long lines and shortage of telllers." is definitely wrong. (according to one of the websites)
Well.. yep, thanks for your help(s)~
People are waiting to help.
