Orlando police stopped a man attempting to kidnap singer Lana Del Rey on Friday, police said. Michael Hunt, 43, of Riverview, Florida, was arrested by Orlando Police Department officers just feet away from the Amway Center where the singer was playing a show Friday night. Hunt was in possession of a knife and tickets to a show but, according to police, was never able to make it inside the venue or in contact with the singer. Police said they were alerted to posts on Hunt’s social media which indicated a “credible threat,” leading to his arrest. He is charged with aggravated stalking and attempted kidnapping with a weapon. Del Rey, currently touring in support of her 2017 album “Lust for Life,” is next scheduled to perform at the Philips Arena in Atlanta on Monday.
