Pastor Creflo Dollar’s Battery Charges from Daughter’s Alleged Assault Have Been Dismissed

It seems mega-church pastor Creflo Dollar Jr.’s simple battery charge from last years scuffle with his daughter has been dismissed, says Fayette County State Court Solicitor Jamie K. Inagawa confirmed on Thursday.

The reason for the dismissal is due to Dollar recently completing a three-month, pre-trial intervention program that allowed him to avoid court. The court says he was required to do the following:

  • enroll in an anger management program
  • report to a probation officer
  • and pay $1,072 in court fees

Last June, Fayette County sheriff’s deputies responded to the Dollars’ home after his daughter told a 911 operator he had punched and choked her.

“It was not the first time it’s happened, ” the girl, whose name is being withheld because she is a minor, said in an audio recording of the 911 call.

The incident report alleged that Dollar choked his daughter for about five seconds with both his hands before grabbing her by the shoulders, slapping her, then throwing her to the ground.

When Dollar spoke to his congregation two days after the incident, denied the accusations.

“She was not choked, ” Dollar said. “She was not punched. The truth is, a family conversation with our youngest daughter got emotional. Things escalated from there.”

We will never know what really happened but we would hope all is better in the Dollar residence and those needing to repent have done so.
