A Florida Man Tried To Kidnap Lana Del Rey
A Florida man is behind bars after attempting to kidnap singer Lana Del Rey.
As the police report states, 43-year-old Michael Hunt was arrested outside of the Amway Center Friday night after officers got word of his intended plans earlier that day.
Police had learned of these plans after Hunt posted "cryptic and threatening" messages on Facebook before the show, as the Orlando Sentinel reports.
“Due to the statements posted by Hunt, victim Elizabeth Grant (Del Rey's real name) was in fear for her safety," wrote Orlando police.
When they arrested him, Hunt had a 3-inch folding knife and tickets to Del Rey's show in his possession.
Now, he's being held at the Orange County Jail without bond under the charges of stalking with credible threat and aggravated kidnapping with a weapon.
