“OPD Detectives considered the information a credible threat and took investigative measures to locate Hunt," tweeted Orlando police.
“OPD officers came into contact with Hunt at Hughey Avenue and Central Boulevard on Friday evening, one block from the Amway Center. When he was taken into custody, Hunt was in possession of tickets to the Lana Del Rey performance and a knife. At no time was he able to make contact with Ms. Grant [Del Rey].

Following the news of the arrest, Del Rey took to Twitter on Sunday to let fans know she's OK: “Hey kiddos, I’m doing fine thanks for the messages.”
