FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar has been arrested after authorities say he slightly hurt his 15-year-old daughter in a fight at his metro Atlanta home.
Fayette County Sheriff’s Office investigator Brent Rowan says deputies responded to a call of domestic violence at the home around 1 a.m. Friday.
Rowan says the 50-year-old pastor and his daughter were arguing over whether she could go to a party when Dollar “got physical” with her, leaving her with “superficial injuries.”
Dollar faces misdemeanor charges of simple battery and cruelty to children. He bonded out of Fayette County jail Friday morning. Dollar’s lawyer Nikki Bonner said he’s gathering information on the case and had no comment.
Dollar is the pastor for World Changers Church International in College Park. A spokeswoman for the church did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
UPDATED: See Video
Recent video shoot while Creflo Dollar was being released shows a humble father explaining to a lone reporter that he was “A Father Disciplining my kid. Love ‘em.” The reporter replies back that it is what every parent does before wishing him good luck. Pastor Dollar then gets in the car and is driven away. See the video below:
