Darrell Edward Collier, 50 of Lindale, was arrested this week after reports said he damaged a lock on a door of a motel on Dean Avenue and then proceeded to bend a window screen.

Reports added that the acts occurred after his mother was evicted from the hotel due to him not paying her rent with her money.

Authorities said that Collier was over his elderly mother’s finances and instead of using the money to pay for her rent, he used the money for other items.  His mother was subsequently evicted.

Collier is charged with exploitation and intimidation of the elderly or disabled and criminal trespass.
