A man who allegedly was planning to kidnap Lana Del Rey is in custody. HuffPost reports that Orlando police arrested forty-three year-old Michael Hunt approximately a block away from the Amway Center, where Del Rey was scheduled to perform.

According to police, they received a tip that Hunt had posted “cryptic and threatening” posts about Del Rey on Facebook. Among the posts was one which read, “I love you so much Lana I can’t wait to be back in your arms in a few days baby I hear you singing I miss you baby I miss you so much Lana.” He further said that he wanted to “see my queen” on the day of the concert and that “[F]rom that day forward our decisions will be as one.”

Hunt was found in possession of a knife and a ticket to the show. He now faces charges of attempted kidnapping and aggravated stalking.

Police said they’d determined that Hunt’s threats were “credible” and that officers “worked swiftly to ensure the safety of everyone involved and of everyone who attended the show.” Del Rey’s concert went down as planned on Friday night.
