Former President Donald Trump surrendered to officials in Fulton County, Georgia, on Thursday evening — the fourth jurisdiction in which he's had to turn himself in this year — to face an indictment on 13 state felony counts for his alleged misdeeds in the wake of the 2020 presidential election.
As part of his processing by Fulton County, Trump was required to have a mugshot taken in a departure from the three previous times the former president surrendered to face the other indictments against him. The photo was subsequently released by the Fulton County Sheriff's Office.
After landing at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport shortly after 7:00 p.m. ET, the 45th president traveled via motorcade to the Fulton County Jail where he arrived around 7:30 p.m. and surrendered to be fingerprinted, photographed, and booked on 13 charges.

Spencer wrote earlier this evening that Trump had surrendered to Georgia authorities around 7:30 PM. He and at least a dozen others were indicted in the state’s probe into alleged 2020 election interference. In May, it became a RICO case, which all but assured an indictment from Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who is now being investigated by House Republicans for prosecutorial overreach, namely that she pursued this legal action based on political animus.
The former president’s mugshot was an awaited event today, a first in American history. He posted his $200,000 bond and promptly departed the Peach State.

He's back, folks.
