Creflo Dollar Arrest: Megachurch Pastor Releases Statement Following Arrest

creflo-dollar

Megachurch Pastor Creflo Dollar has officially released a statement following his arrest after authorities say he mildly injured his 15 year-old daughter during a disagreement at their Atlanta metro home.

Dollar, known for his extravagant way of living and presentation of prosperity in religion, was arrested by Fayette County deputies that were called to his home by his 15 year-old daughter shortly after 1 a.m according to investigator Brent Rowan.

Arguing over whether or not his daughter could attend a party, Rowan says that Dollar “got physical” with the 15 year-old leaving her with “superficial injuries.”

Facing misdemeanor charges of battery and cruelty to children, Dollar bailed out of jail the follow morning and released this statement through his lawyer Nikki Bonner:

“As a father I love my children and I always have their best interest at heart at all times, and I would never use my hand to ever cause bodily harm to my children. The facts in this case will be handled privately to further protect my children. My family thanks you for your prayers and continued support.”

It is reported that Creflo Dollar will resume his preaching duties on Sunday morning at World Changers Church International where he serves as the pastor to a community of over 30,000 members.

The website for World Changers Church International proclaims that Dollar began his ministry in 1986 where he held his first service in a local school cafeteria with only eight people in attendance.

The church has since grown exponentially with a 6,000 member New York location, as well as various other “satellite locations” located in Los Angeles, Indianapolis, Washington, Cleveland, Dallas and Houston.

    I wish my child would call the police, because after I get out of jail they can cart her off and feed her and clothe her too.

    I do not think he should used excessive force to his child. He should have called 911 to let them know what is going on, if his daughter is out of control. All he has to say is no, period, and explain to her why she's not allowed to go to that party. And if she start throwing a tantrum and uncontrolable, called 911.

    These types of comments are looking to see whether or not she deserved what she got. It doesn’t matter. Physical violence with a child is never justified. Period. If your teenage daughter is physically threatening your safety than call the police. Dollar claims everything is fine in his household. Really? You just got arrested. I’d like to know what your daughters think. My full rant about his abuse is here:

    No one really knows what happened, its a pastor's word against the daughter's, may be the rest of the family should testify but I really don't think the pastor is capable of child abuse, America has given children extreme rights that a child is also capable of manipulating that into accusations against the parents. I DO NOT SUPPORT CHILD ABUSE THOUGH.
