ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Fayette County State Court officials say a simple assault charged filed against 50-year-old mega-church founder Creflo Dollar Jr. has been dismissed.

Officials say Dollar’s then 15-year-old daughter filed the charge against him in June, and Dollar has consistently denied the allegations.

Dollar, founder and pastor of College Park-based World Changers Church International, is a well-known fixture in prosperity gospel — a branch of evangelical Christianity that teaches those with the most material wealth are among the most highly spiritually favored.

Jamie K. Inagawa, Fayette County State Court solicitor, told the newspaper Dollar was required to enroll in an anger management program, report to probation and pay $1,072 in court fees.
