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.

The father-of-two was found with a gunshot wound to the chest, the Daily Mail reported.

Georgia faced a maximum penalty of a $1,000 fine and/or up to 180 days in jail.

The Trump supporter reportedly worked at the North Carolina-based banking company BB&T, as a regional portfolio manager.
