New accusations against Daniel Nations came Tuesday.

Nations was accused of attempted trespassing into a vehicle, a felony, as well as attempted assault and criminal mischief, both misdemeanors, court records show.

The allegations add to a list of Nations' potential charges that include illegally possessing a weapon, felony menacing with a real or simulated weapon and reckless endangerment.

Some arrest records against Nations were sealed. Others were not immediately available.

Nations, 31, was arrested Sept. 25 in Teller County by Woodland Park police.

He was suspected of threatening mountain bikers while wielding a hatchet, the Teller County Sheriff's Office said. Officers stopped his red Chevrolet Prizm with expired Indiana license plates about 3 p.m. The car matched descriptions provided in several tips about menacing in the Monument and Mount Herman areas, the Sheriff's Office said.

Unrelated to the alleged menacing, Nations also faces a penalty for failing to register as a sex offender, court records show.

Indiana authorities cited Nations for failing to register his new address after disappearing in May. His last known address was a motel in Greenwood, Ind., south of Indianapolis, but when police checked on him in July they learned he'd moved May 12 and had not registered elsewhere.His booking information at Teller County jail Tuesday listed his address as "Transient, CO."

Since being convicted of public indecency in South Carolina in 2006, Nations must register wherever he lives.

He also was wanted in Indiana for failing to appear for a probation revocation hearing related to his 2015 conviction for public indecency for fondling his genitals, records show.
