Supporters are coming to Dollar’s defense on his Facebook page, telling the public to stop judging the pastor and expressing empathy as the parent of a teenager.

“I support my pastor fully! My 12 year old is already going through the terrible teens and I full understand how this situation can happen. Shame on the daughter for not following his word at no, then becoming combative and calling the police to embarrass her father. I will be praying that the get everything straightned (sic) out,” Leslie Ayo commented.

Dollar, pastor of World Changers Church International, was arrested early Friday on charges of simple battery and cruelty to children.

According to Investigator Brent Rowan of the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office, Dollar got into an argument with his 15-year-old daughter over whether she could attend a party. The Atlanta pastor allegedly choked his daughter, threw her to the ground, punched her and hit her with his shoe.

The daughter called 911 around 2 a.m.
