Hunt is being held at Orange County Jail without bond.
Taken to custody at 9pm, Hunt was said to be carrying a 3-inch folding knife and aroused suspicion when he shared “cryptic and threatening” posts on social media toward the singer: “I want to see my queen on Friday and from that day forward our decisions will be as one,” Hunt wrote on Jan. 30.
It is also believed that Hunt posted a disturbing video on Facebook in which he rambles and shifts nervously, saying: “I’m going to probably finish out her tour with her, obviously, and dance and talk and figure out what we’re going to do,” he said.
“I’m letting my feet rest before I take off with Lana,” he added.
