Stalker arrested for attempting to kidnap Lana Del Rey

A 43-year-old Florida man has been arrested for stalking and attempting to kidnap Lana Del Rey.According to a police report, Michael Hunt was arrested outside of a venue on Lana Del Rey’s tour in Orlando, Fla after the Orlando Police Department received a tip about the man’s unusual behaviour.

Del Rey was due to perform the Amway Centre and where Mr Hunt was found with a weapon and tickets to her concert. The official police report explains how the man was charged for stalking with a credible threat and aggravated kidnapping with a weapon. 

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.
