Daniel Nations’ legal problems are mounting.

He was arrested this week in Teller County on suspicion of illegally possessing a weapon and now faces charges in El Paso County related to the reported hatchet threats against mountain bikers in the Mount Herman area.

He has been accused of felony menacing with a real or simulated weapon and reckless endangerment, according to court records. Arrest records detailing his connection to the threats were sealed.

The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office had previously named Nations a suspect in the threats based on the vehicle he was driving, which matched witness descriptions.

“We do anticipate more charges related to the menacing cases,” Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Jacqueline Kirby said.

Colorado is not the only state where Nations, a convicted sex offender, faces charges.
