A Florida man has been arrested for allegedly threatening to kidnap singer Lana Del Rey. As The New York Times reports, 43-year-old Michael Shawn Hunt of Riverview was arrested in Orlando on Friday outside of the Amway Center. The singer was performing there.
Hunt was carrying a ticket to the concert as well as a knife. He was apprehended approximinately a block away from the venue. The suspect was arrested on charges of attempted kidnapping with a weapon and aggravated stalking with a credible threat.
As Fader shares, authorities said that Hunt posed a “credible threat” to 33-year-old Del Rey. He apparently made “cryptic and threatening” posts on social media. Prior to the arrest, Orlando authorities received a tip tip off about Hunt. He never came into contact with the singer.
When authorities interviewed Hunt, they said that he was chanted gibberish about going to the “afterlife.” “The interview with Hunt was very disturbing,” a detective wrote, per the

After an Ohio woman scalded her 4-year-old stepson to death in a bathtub, both she and her husband, the boy’s father, were convicted in his death, Crime Online reported.
The boy’s father, Robert Ritchie, 32, was sentenced to seven years in prison on Tuesday for failing to get medical help for his son, Austin Cooper, in his 2016 death. His wife, Anna Ritchie, was previously sentenced to 18 years to life after pleading guilty to charges of murder, involuntary manslaughter, felonious assault and endangering children charges.
Prosecutors alleged that Anna Ritchie held Austin in 135-degree water for 20-25 minutes because she resented being his primary caregiver, according to WXIX.
Robert Ritchie came home shortly after the assault and did not care for his son, prosecutors claimed.
“The question that kept me awake at night is: why did you not check on this little boy, your son, Austin, as he lay there for

The Salt Lake City police detective, Jeff Payne, who was caught on video aggressively arresting a nurse who was trying to protect an unconscious patient has been fired. Additionally, his watch commander James Tracy was demoted from lieutenant to officer, according to the Washington Post.
The actions were taken after internal review by the Salt Lake City Police Department was conducted. That review concluded that Payne and Tracey violated department policy.
“I have lost faith and confidence in your ability to continue to serve as a member of the Salt Lake City Police Department,” Chief Mike Brown stated in a termination letter to Payne. That letter was published by the Deseret News. “I am deeply troubled by your lack of sound, professional judgment and your discourteous, disrespectful and unwarranted behavior, which unnecessarily escalated a situation that could and should have been resolved in a manner far different from the course

There’s no fury like a woman scorned. According to the New York Post, a Texas woman has been arrested in connection to her ex-husband’s disappearance.
Kristen Anne Dean Jennings, 28, of San Angelo was taken into custody today after her ex, 41-year-old Vincent Torrez, went missing on July 21. She has been charged with burglary of a habitation with intent to commit another felony, per the Abilene Reporter-News.
Two days before the disappearance, Jennings took to Facebook to vent about a man—presumably her ex—being abusive to her and wanting custody of her kids. “Seriously done with the ‘legal’ way of doing this!!!” she wrote.
Torrez (pictured below) has not been found, and authorities believe his disappearance is a homicide.
Jennings allegedly entered Torrez’s mother’s home on July 21, assaulted her and then forcibly took Jennings’ and Torrez’ 4-year-old, per a police news release. Investigators have also arrested Jennings’ husband, Stephen Lynn Jennings, as well as his

Following the release of Remy Ma‘s diss track “ShETHER,” many expected Nicki Minaj — Remy’s unsuspecting target — to jump right in the studio and get to work on her response. We all thought it would be Drake vs. Meek Mill 2.0, but we may have been wrong about that.
It’s been days since Remy dropped her bomb, and Nicki hasn’t made any indication that she’s going to respond to it; in fact, she’s barely acknowledged it at all, aside from beefing with Trey Songz about it and vague posting on Instagram.
So what’s Nicki been up to? She has been working on music, sort of; specifically, she’s been filming music videos with Gucci Mane and Future, and posting pics and videos from the shoots on her Instagram.
