FAYETTE COUNTY, Ga. —
Police arrested megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar Jr. on simple battery charges in Fayette County on Friday.
Dollar was booked into the county jail at 2 a.m. A judge set Dollar’s bond at $5,000 during a morning hearing.
Sources reported Deputies arrested Dollar at his home after receiving a 911 call from Dollar’s 15-year-old daughter. She said her father attacked her after an argument about the girl attending a party.
A witness told authorities that Dollar grabbed the girl around her throat and choked her causing a scratch on her neck, according to Fayette County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Brent Rowan.
“Discipline my kid. Love ‘em,” Dollar said as he was leaving jail Friday morning.
Dollar’s bond conditions did not prohibit him from being near his daughter sources reported.
