On the day of the Capitol riots, Georgia had stayed out past the 6pm curfew after police officers told Trump fans to leave around 7.15pm, court documents showed.
He was charged with attempting to “enter certain property, that is, the United States Capitol Grounds, against the will of the United States Capitol Police,” the police report states.
Georgia faced a maximum penalty of a $1,000 fine and/or up to 180 days in jail.
