AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

The Georgia Attorney General's Office is not filing any charges against former Augusta Commissioner and Georgia State Patrol Lieutenant Donnie Smith. 

Smith allegedly worked a second job during Masters week in 2014 while also reporting himself as on-duty with the Georgia State Patrol. 

Assistant Attorney General Blair L. McGowan said while Smith's actions did violate Georgia Department of Public Safety policy, they "do not rise to the level of any prosecutable offenses."

Because Smith holds a certification with the Georgia Peace Officers Standards and Training Council (P.O.S.T.), McGowan is referring the investigation to P.O.S.T. so that they can decide if any sanctions are warranted.
