ATLANTA — Atlanta rapper Sergio "Gunna" Kitchens has been arrested according to Fulton County Jail records.

They show Kitchens was booked sometime early Wednesday morning on a RICO charge. He is one of 28 people named in a massive gang indictment, which claims he is an associate of the Young Slime Life gang.

The indictment filed Monday in Fulton County Superior Court accuses Kitchens, of violating Georgia's anti-racketeering law. It was not immediately clear whether he had a lawyer who could comment on the charges.

Rapper Young Thug was arrested in Atlanta on Monday, and faces a slew of accusations from Fulton County's district attorney, including that he was allegedly a founder and active leader of the violent Young Slime Life street gang.

The gang has committed murders, shootings and carjackings over roughly a decade and promoted its activities in songs and on social media. 

The 80-plus page indictment includes a wide-ranging list of 181 acts that prosecutors say were committed starting in 2013 as part of the alleged racketeering conspiracy to further the gang’s interests.
