If your droplet was locked it was likely due to an abuse issue and the droplet may have been compromised. A ticket should have been opened on your account with details. If your plan of action is simply to destroy the droplet please respond to that ticket letting our support team know and they can remove the lock to allow you to destroy the droplet.
