Alleged Lana Del Rey stalker tracked down with help of phone records

- A man obsessed with a singer, was tracked down outside her concert,  with help from phone records.

In the days leading up to singer Lana Del Rey's performance at the Amway Center, prosecutors say Michael Shawn Hunt wrote some posts on his page.

"Our queen forever in both worlds. I love you so much Lana, can't wait to be back in your arms."

Investigators say the 43-year-old had never met the singer, yet wrote differently..

"My wife's concert was on the 16th, until I realized she was coming into town I asked the universe to move her now she's coming on the 2nd."

Cops received a tip concerned for the singer's safety, "Well folks I can barely touch the electronics anymore its probably my last day on Facebook. I hope to see Ya'll on the walk about in your life be good and I'll see you on the other side. Everybody take care."

Police say Hunt has 61 felony convictions, with different mug shots throughout the years. A judge signed a pen and trace order.

We asked attorney Lawrence Walters what it meant, "It allows police a record of incoming and outgoing calls. So its just a record of phone numbers that are being called or that are calling you."

But he says police would also need a warrant to take it to the next step, "That's the location that would come from pinging the cell phone towers."

Prosecutors say he wanted to inflict bodily harm or terrorize the singer. He's charged with aggravated stalking.

Something Hunt argued, "This is a serious charge. The lady doesn't know me, how could it possibly be a serious charge if me and her has never met each other and everything is out in front."
