Dollar, who bonded out of Fayette County jail shortly after being arrested for allegedly assaulting his 15-year old daughter told reporters this morning that he had no comment for his congregation, but he did admit he disagrees with the arrest.
“I discipline my kid. Love ‘em,” Dollar said as he was leaving jail Friday morning.
Dollar has now issued an official statement regarding the incident.
Here’s what Creflo Dollar wants you to know about the incident that he was arrested for this morning…
The facts in this case will be handled privately to further protect my children. My family thanks you for your prayers and continued support.
Nikki G. Bonner, the attorney for the mega-church pastor adds that Dollar “will make no further comments as this is an ongoing criminal matter.”
A witness told authorities that Dollar grabbed the 15 year old girl around her throat and choked her causing a scratch on her neck, according to Fayette County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Brent Rowan.
Deputies said Dollar’s 19-year-old daughter corroborated the story.
Parents have every right to discipline their kids, but do you think Dollar may have gone too far?
