More parents should discipline their kids more often. Too many kids think they can do whatever they want. Alwayz Therro supports discipline in the home. Hope you do as well. Police arrested megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar Jr. on simple battery charges in Fayette County on Friday.
A judge set Dollar’s bond at $5,000 during a morning hearing. 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. He told Jones he had no comment for his congregation. Dollar’s bond conditions did not prohibit him from being near his daughter, Jones reported.
Dollar is the founder and senior pastor of World Changers Church in College Park. The church has nearly 30,000 members and includes satellite campuses in 10 cities. Dollar’s weekly services are broadcast across the country.
