Wrong place at the wrong time.

Rapper Rico Richie was arrested in an Atlanta recording studio Wednesday after police arrived to investigate Young Thug.

According to TMZ, police visited the Atlanta studio that Thug had shot his "Halftime" music video in, looking to continue their investigation into the Lil Wayne tour bus shooting, when they arrested the "Poppin'" rapper for possession of firearms and selling weed.

Richie's crew claimed the drugs nor guns were his, but that the rapper didn't want to snitch, so he "accepted responsibility."

They added that he has a felony record, so it could be a bigger issue.
