It depends. There are about a dozen different "false report" statutes in Georgia. If you are referring to making a false report of a crime, you could be charged with a misdemeanor. However, there are also false report charges for false 911 calls, false fire report calls, falsifying records on official applications, etc. You should consult with an attorney if you have been charged with any crime.
