Megachurch Pastor Creflo Dollar Jr. was booked into the Fayette County Jail in Atlanta, GA around 2 a.m. this morning, June 8th. His bond was set at $5,000 a few hours later during his court hearing, and he was released shortly after the hearing ended. Creflo is facing battery charges for having "intentionally caused physical harm to his teenage daughter by grabbing her around the neck and choking her," according to the arrest warrant.
Apparently he and his 15-year-old daughter got into a heated argument about her going out to a party, when suddenly he "attacked her," as his daughter claims. Creflo's strong hand wrapped around his daughter's throat severed some flesh, as a scratch mark was left on the right side of her throat. Upon leaving jail this morning, Creflo simply stated to reporters questioning him about the violent incident:
"Discipline my kid. Love 'em."
He has not been prohibited from interacting with his daughter, so maybe they can settle this personal matter quietly at home before the media gets involved any further.
