Creflo Dollar, a megachurch pastor and televangelist, was arrested on Friday morning after hurting his 15-year-old daughter during a fight inside their home outside of Atlanta. The 15-year-old is one of Dollar’s five children with his wife and co-pastor, Taffi.
The fight reportedly occurred after Dollar’s daughter asked to go to a party, and then the pair became physical. Police were called around 1 a.m. by the daughter, and an older daughter backed up the story.
Dollar is known for his lavish lifestyle and his preaching that prosperity is a good thing. He serves nearly 30,000 people at his church, World Changers Church International, which is located outside of Atlanta in College Park. World Changers International has 11 satellite churches located in major cities such as New York, Los Angeles, and Washington. Dollar also heads Creflo Dollar Ministries.
Dollar has written nearly 30 books, and speaks around the nation, which pays him about $100,00 per appearance. He owns a horse ranch which also brings him income, although he does not take any money from his church anymore, according to an interview with Associated Press.
The pastor could face misdemeanor charges of battery and cruelty to children. He is currently out on bail, and is expected to preach on Sunday morning at his church.
