creflo dollar*Remember that incident last June when Atlanta mega-church pastor Creflo Dollar Jr. was arrested after he allegedly assaulted his teenage daughter?

They got into a tussle when he objected to her going out late at night to a party.

Well, it’s been dismissed according to Fayette County State Court Solicitor Jamie K. Inagawa

Dollar, one of the best-known adherents of a prosperity gospel, recently completed a three-month, pre-trial intervention program that allowed him to avoid court. He was required to enroll in an anger management program, report to a probation officer and pay $1,072 in court fees, the solicitor said.

The pastor of World Changers Church International has no history of such incidents, and the victim, Dollar’s 15-year-old daughter, didn’t want to see him charged, Inagawa said. The program was used in 128 cases last year, he said.

“Those are among a number of factors we considered,” the solicitors aid.

Fayette County sheriff’s deputies responded to the Dollars’ home June 8 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.
