CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A man accused of walking dangerously close to Old Faithful geyser in Yellowstone National Park has waived his preliminary hearing on a separate incident in Cheyenne.

KGAB-AM reports that Gabriel Villalva, of Greeley, Colorado, is charged in Laramie County with interference with a peace officer-injury, reckless driving and eluding.

The charges stem from a Sept. 19 incident in which police say Villalva led police on a chase that included crashing into a police car.

Villalva remains jailed on a $10,000 cash bond. His arraignment date has not yet been set.

Before the Cheyenne incident, Yellowstone rangers cited Villalva for walking off boardwalks and within a few feet of Old Faithful on Sept. 14. Tourists also captured video of a man resembling Villalva sitting next to one of Yellowstone's hottest springs.
