Daniel Nations now facing additional charge, bonds reduced

Posted: Updated:

Daniel Nations, the man suspected of threatening hikers with a hatchet near Mt. Herman appeared Wednesday morning in El Paso County court.

Nations was charged with an additional count of trespassing in El Paso County in addition to a felony menacing charge.

He is also facing a weapons charge in Teller County.

A judge also reduced three of his bonds from $15,000 to $5,000, $3,000 to $1,000, and $2,000 to $800.

Nations was stopped in Woodland Park for having a broken tail light on Sept. 25. Officers said his car matched a description for the menacing case in El Paso County.

The menacing incidents reportedly happened near the same area where bicyclist Tim Watkins was shot and killed in mid-September.

Detectives with the El Paso County Sheriffs Office said they have made no public connection between Nations and the Tim Watkins homicide investigation.

Indiana State Police also came to Colorado to interview him about a double murder case of two teenage girls, but the officers left without announcing they had linked him to the case in Delphi, Indiana.

Posts on social media about the menacing incident suggested that, in late August, a man charged at people along Mount Herman Road with a hatchet. When questioned by the Woodland Park police about about the menacing incidents, Nations admitted to owning a hatchet but denied threatening anyone with it saying "we're not that kind of people."

He is a registered sex offender and had open warrants out of Indiana for failing to register as a sex offender, marijuana possession and driving without a license.

Court records show that Nations was convicted of indecent exposure in South Carolina back in 2008 and again for public indecency in Bartholomew County, Indiana in 2015.  Nations has been charged multiple times with domestic violence. He was convicted in 2012 on a felony charge of Habitual Drunk Driving in South Carolina.

His preliminary hearing for the menacing case is scheduled for Nov. 29 in El Paso County.
