AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- A man who the Richmond County Sheriff's Office says was creating a ruckus at Augusta National was found not guilty by a jury on Monday.

Deputies originally charged Larry Craft with criminal trespass and obstruction of a law enforcement officer.

The Sheriff's Office says Craft, a street preacher from Tennessee, was told not to enter Augusta National because of what he was saying to golf patrons about their religious beliefs.

Deputies say they told him to leave and he had to be wrestled to the ground when he refused to cooperate.
