Mega church pastor Creflo Dollar is in deep trouble after an altercation that occurred in his Fayette County, Georgia home.
The 50-year old leader of World Changers Church International has been arrested and is accused of beating his 15 year old daughter during an argument over a party.
Just for the record Dollar is the same Pastor who stood up for Bishop Eddie Long, telling people Long had simply had an “accident” when he was accused of sexual misconduct (CLICK HERE if you missed that)

According to the police report , Dollar choked his daughter, then threw her to the ground, punched her and hit her with his shoe during a fight at his metro Atlanta home.
The responding officer noticed a scratch on the daughter’s neck near her throat and the teen told police it was her father who gave her the scratch during the fight.
Fayette County Sheriff’s Office investigator Brent Rowan says the 50-year-old pastor “got physical” with his daughter, leaving her with “superficial injuries.”
The founder and pastor of World Changers Church International was arrested and has been charged with simple battery and cruelty to children for allegedly attacking his daughter during an fight over whether she could attend a party.
According to WXIA:
Dollar’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 Dollar 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 Dollar, 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. Dollar admitted to spanking his daughter and wrestling her to the floor, but said it was because she hit him.
Dollar bonded out of Fayette County jail Friday morning and his attorney, Nikki Bonner said she’s gathering information on the case and had no comment.
At his World Changers mega-church, Dollar preaches a “Prosperity theology” in his Sunday sermons that are broadcast internationally.
The theology, which teaches that God wants to bless the faithful with earthly riches, drew the attention of Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, who targeted six ministers in an investigation in 2011 into the personal use of church-owned airplanes, luxury homes and credit cards by pastors and their families.
All six insisted they comply with tax regulations for religious nonprofits. Dollar was one of four ministers (including Eddie Long) who refused to cooperate with the investigation.

Well… If he’s anything like Eddie Long, the sermon on Sunday will be quite interesting.
