Georgia megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar arrested

By KATE BRUMBACKASSOCIATED PRESS updated Saturday, June 9, 2012 - 1:39am

ATLANTA Megachurch pastor and televangelist Creflo Dollar who has drawn scrutiny for his flashy lifestyle and preaching that prosperity is good was arrested early Friday after authorities say he slightly hurt his 15-year-old daughter in a fight at his metro Atlanta home.

Fayette County Sheriff's deputies responded to a call of domestic violence at the home in unincorporated Fayette County around 1 a.m., said investigator Brent Rowan. The pastor and his daughter were arguing over whether she could go to a party when Dollar "got physical" with her, leaving her with "superficial injuries," Rowan said.
The 15-year-old was the one who called authorities, and her 19-year-old sister corroborated the story, Rowan said.

Dollar faces misdemeanor charges of simple battery and cruelty to children. He bonded out of Fayette County jail Friday morning.

2. I much prefer this photo.

He claims he should not have been arrested and he DIDN'T choke his daughter.

5. I used to see ads for this guys "ministries" all the time on TV in central GA

I thought it was a joke, too. He's about a slick and sleazy as they come, preaching prosperity thru Jesus in his fancy pinstripe suit.

Sickening. Someone arrest him for his REAL crimes--fleecing the poor and ignorant.

6. Obviously God named him that.

But seriously, I think it's a suggestion that you should give him your dollars, and then of course God willl be pleased and give you dollars. That's the whole idea with televangelism.

10. No, that was someone else.



I'm sure Maher could have had a field day though if he got the chance to interview this guy.
