According to investigator Brent Rowan of Fayette County Sheriff’s department, police officials responded to a domestic violence call at the home of the Pastor around 1 a.m.”Dollar and his 15 year old daughter were arguing over whether she could go to a party when the evangelist “got physical” with her, leaving her with “superficial injuries.”

The teenager made the call to 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.

“As a father I love my children and I always have their best interest at heart at all times, and I would never use my hand to ever cause bodily harm to my children,” Dollar said in a statement released by his lawyer Nikki Bonner. “The facts in this case will be handled privately to further protect my children. My family thanks you for your prayers and continued support.”

Dollar, a former educational therapist, started World Changers Ministries in 1986 with eight members, holding services in the cafeteria of a local elementary school, according to the church’s website. Its campus now occupies 81 acres, with services held in the 8,500-seat World Dome. Dollar is a regular on the Trinity Broadcasting Network.

In 2007, Dollar and Bishop Eddie Long of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia were among six ministers audited by U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, the ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee, for suspected misuse of funds. Neither pastor cooperated with the probe, citing the separation of church and state.
