Friday morning in Fayette County, Pastor Creflo Dollar was taken into custody and arrested for simple battery according to an early WSB report.
Details have yet to be released concerning the victim and when the initial incident happened. A $5000 bond was set for Pastor Dollar. As he was leaving the jail this morning, WSB reports that he said, “I just love my kid. Love ‘em. Same problem every parent’s going through.”
UPDATE: 11Alive.com is reporting that the police report states that Creflo Dollar got into a physical argument with his 15 year-old daughter and she was the one that called police. She made claims of being choked and the responding officer saw a scratch near her neck.
Creflo Dollar is the founder of World Changers Church in College Park, GA. The congregation has roughly 30,000 members and an extensive network of ministries spanning 10 cities.
Over the years, Creflo Dollar and other mega-church leaders have come under national scrutiny for preaching a "prosperity gospel". A prosperity gospel says, "Give and you shall receive." The controversy arises because many of these mega-church leaders have super expensive homes and cars, and much of it coming from their congregation's tithe.
