ROSEPINE, LA (KPLC) -

Rosepine Police Chief James "Dennis" Parrott was arrested Wednesday on charges of stalking and malfeasance in office, state police said.

Sgt. James Anderson, spokesman for Troop D, said the 49-year-old Parrott was arrested in both Vernon and Beauregard parishes.

"Last month, detectives received a criminal complaint about Parrott," Anderson said in a news release. "The complaint alleged Parrott stalked his estranged wife while she was at her place of work and at her home."

Anderson said Parrott allegedly followed his wife and a male friend back to her new residence where he obtained the license plate number of the male’s vehicle. Parrott then used the Rosepine Police Department’s computer databases to run the license plate to obtain the identity of the male friend, Anderson said.

"The investigation confirmed that Parrott did use the police department’s database to run the license plate," Anderson said. "Detectives also confirmed that Parrott followed his estranged wife home from work and took photographs of her at her place of employment. Furthermore, Parrott contacted his wife’s employer and requested that she be terminated."
