COLLEGE PARK, Ga. (AP) — A 15-year-old girl who told a 911 operator she was allegedly punched and choked by her televangelist father, Creflo Dollar Jr., also said on the call she felt threatened being in the house with her father.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported more details of the audio recording and said the teenager told the operator: "It was not the first time it's happened."
The megachurch pastor was arrested after his daughter called 911 early Friday and told sheriff's deputies she and her father argued when he wouldn't allow her to attend a party.
Dollar denied her accusations Sunday from the pulpit of his megachurch, World Changers Church International. He told the congregation "all is well in the Dollar household" and that "emotions escalated," but he should never have been arrested.
