Son allegedly kicks down parents' door

Staff writer

A Hillsboro man was arrested on multiple charges after he allegedly “kicked down” the front door of his parents’ house on Nov. 22 at 112 N. Jefferson St.

The incident occurred between 7:15 and 10:50 p.m. after Larry and Cecilia LaPlante of Hillsboro allegedly asked their son, Derrick LaPlante, 31, of Hillsboro, to leave their home, police chief Dan Kinning said.

“He lives next door to his mother and father,” Kinning said. “They said he got out-of-control.”

Later, Derrick LePlante allegedly returned to his parents’ property and “kicked down” their front door, valued at $1,000, Kinning said.

“It was apparent he had been drinking,” Kinning said. “He was very intoxicated.”

Officer Steven Janzen responded to the call and made the arrest, during which Derrick LaPlante allegedly threatened to kill Janzen, Kinning said.

Derrick LePlante faces charges of disorderly conduct, criminal trespass, criminal threat, and criminal damage to property.
