Mega-church pastor Creflo Dollar was released from jail yesterday after allegedly attacking his daughter during an argument in their home.
According the WSB-TV news, the pastor and his 15-year-old daughter got into a fight over a party she wanted to attend. According to his 19-year-old daughter, Creflo then proceeded to grab her by the neck, choking her, leaving visible scratches around her neck.
Deputies were then called to the home by his daughter, where they arrested Dollar. He was booked into the Fayette County Jail around 2am on Friday morning with a five thousand dollar bond.
He was released late Friday morning; but his bond doesn’t prevent him from maintaining contact with his daughter, according to WSB-TV reporter Tom Jones. Upon leaving the county jail, Dollar had this to say about the incident:
“Discipline my kid. Love ‘em.”
Creflo Dollar is pastor and founder of World Changes Church in College Park, Atlanta. The church had 30,000 members with ten satellite campuses around the country.
