Megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar arrested
By The Associated Press
FAYETTEVILLE - Megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar has been arrested after authorities say he had a physical altercation with his 15-year-old daughter at his metro Atlanta home.
Investigator Brent Rowan with the Fayette County Sheriff's Office 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.
