Megachurch pastor, Creflo Dollar Jr. was arrested today [June 8] on simply battery charges and was booked into the country jail in Georgia.
The details remain sketchy up to blog time…no information on victim or incident revealed.
Dollar is the founder and senior pastor of megachurch World Changers Church in College Park, Georgia.
UPDATE: It seems as if the pastor was arrested for ‘bussing’ his daughter’s tail.
According to the police report from the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office, Dollar’s daughter called police to say that her father attacked her after they argued about whether the daughter could attend a party.
The report says Dollar choked his daughter, then threw her to the ground, punched her and hit her with his shoe. The responding officer noticed a scratch on the daughter’s neck near her throat; the daughter said her father gave her the scratch during the fight.
When police interviewed Dollar, he said he tried to restrain his daughter when she “became very disrespectful” after he told her she couldn’t go to the party, according to the report. Dollar admitted to spanking his daughter and wrestling her to the floor, but said it was because she hit him.
