Creflo Dolla Arrested after 'abusing his teenage daughter because she wanted to go to a party'

Megachurch pastor and televangelist Creflo Dollar - who has drawn scrutiny for his flashy lifestyle and preaching that prosperity is good - was arrested early on Friday for allegedly roughing up his 15-year-old daughter at his Atlanta home.

Fayette County Sheriff's deputies responded to a call of domestic violence at the property in Fayette County around 1am, said investigator Brent Rowan.

The 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,' Mr Rowan said.

The 15-year-old was the one who called authorities, and her 19-year-old sister corroborated the story.

Dollar faces misdemeanor charges of simple battery and cruelty to children. He was released from Fayette County jail on bond on Friday morning. Read More
