Orlando Police was alerted to posts Hunt made on social media which indicated a "credible threat" that lead to his arrest. Now, the would-be kidnapper has been charged with aggravated stalking and attempted kidnapping with a weapon.

Hunt wrote several Facebook posts stating he intended to kidnap Del Rey just before the concert Friday. "I want to see my queen on Friday and from that day forward our decisions will be as one," he said in a post on Tuesday.
