NAACP to investigate arrest of Creflo Dollar

The NAACP is looking deeper into the arrest of Atlanta pastor and televangelist Rev. Creflo Dollar. The local chapter believes that the Fayette County sheriffs department overreacted because of Dollar’s high profile status. TheCitizen.com reports:

The Georgia State Conference of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the Fayette County Branch of the NAACP are conducting a preliminary investigation into the circumstances of the June 8 arrest of World Changers Church International Pastor Creflo Dollar.

The well-known mega-church pastor was arrested at his Sandy Creek Road home shortly after midnight on charges of simple battery and cruelty to children after Fayette County deputies responded to his north Fayette County residence on a domestic disturbance call.

The arrest came after Dollar’s 15-year-old daughter and a witness, the girl’s 19-year-old sister, told deputies that their father physically assaulted the 15-year-old.
