P astor Creflo Dollar was arrested in Fayette County of Atlanta on Friday. Deputies arrested Creflo at his home after receiving a 911call from Creflo’s 15-year-old daughter. Creflo was taken into custody at 2 a.m. and charged with simple battery and cruelty to children. According to the police report from the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office, Creflo’s daughter called police to say that her father attacked her after they argued about whether the daughter could attend a party. The report says Creflo choked his daughter, then threw her to the ground, punched her and hit her with his shoe. The responding officer noticed a scratch on the daughter’s neck near her throat; the daughter said her father gave her the scratch during the fight.
When police interviewed Creflo, he said he tried to restrain his daughter when she “became very disrespectful” after he told her she couldn’t go to the party, according to the report. Creflo admitted to spanking his daughter and wrestling her to the floor, but said it was because she hit him.
A judge set Creflo’s bond at $5,000 during a morning hearing. “Discipline my kid. Love ‘em,” Creflo said as he was leaving jail Friday morning.
I’m not going to say to much on the subject, because I wasn’t there — but these kids are out of control. We need some of that, “old mother’s board and old deacons” kind of prayer for this kids today!
