Megachurch Pastor, Creflo Dollar, Arrested For Assaulting Daughter
Creflo Dollar, a pastor of a 30,000-member megachurch in Georgia, was arrested for allegedly assaulting his 15-year-old daughter.
Dollar was taken into custody after police responded to a domestic disturbance around 1am today at his Atlanta home. Dollar’s daughter told the officers her father choked and punched her during an argument over whether she could go to a party, reports CNN.
Dollar is charged with simple battery, family violence, and child cruelty, and was released on $5,000 bail this morning. Dollar serves as a senior pastor at the World Changers Church International, a megachurch he founded in the 1980s which preaches that God will reward faithful believers with wealth and and a debt-free life.
