ATLANTA (AP) Megachurch pastor and televangelist Creflo Dollar was arrested early Friday after authorities say he slightly hurt his 15-year-old daughter in a fight at his metro Atlanta home.
Fayette County Sheriff's deputies responded to a call of domestic violence at the home in unincorporated Fayette County around 1 a.m., Investigator Brent Rowan said. 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," Rowan said.
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.

As an aside... 15 year olds are psychotic!
A client once told me that when his kids were 15 he wanted to kill them and tell God they died.
I understand the feeling - thankfully behind us now.
one of his properties...
I wonder how many of the church donations actually went out for any missionary work?
Guess this might clear up some more airtime on TBN for Benny Hinn or Joel Osteen.
I do get tired of the phoney televangelists and a lot of other false prophets. They are antitheses of the great works that Christianity and Christians do.
I’ve heard him on the radio before. With a name like Creflo $$$$$ and then hearing him asking for money it’s kind of obvious which master he serves.
The 15-year-old is in my daughter’s class at a Catholic high school. She ought to have known better.
He is a word/faith prosperity gospel type of preacher. Hank Hannegraaff exposed him and many others of this ilk as frauds, Joyce Meyers, Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth Hagin etc. They are driven by greed and are NOT preaching the Word of God. They are more like a cult deceiving their members into thinking they are a Christian church.
You are deceived. He may stumble onto some truth now and again, but the man is a false profit! For the sake of your soul and the souls of your family, run from this man.
Have you seen his money dance?
Back in the early 90’s, before he was widely known, I heard him speak- small room at a Holiday Inn. He was very charismatic, but very much “prosperity” gospel. I got his number the second time he returned to town. I was working on my pilot’s license. He flew in and it was quite the flashy show with his private jet, limo, security, etc. A wise friend pointed out that people that were really famous that flew in did so incognito and didn’t take a big limo. I had a Godly light bulb moment.
ugh. I had not seen that before. I don’t get how anyone can watch that and say that he is a Christian. ugh
Well, I've only heard a bit of one, years ago. I was flipping channels and happened on his show. He was telling his congregation that it's OK to tell God you need a new car, and furthermore, it's OK to tell Him you don't want some piece of junk, you want a Cadillac!
That was all I needed to hear.
Would you conclude that all ‘pastors’ who are wealthy, are ‘evil’?
