BOULDER, Colo. -- Police in Colorado have arrested a 30-year-old man accused of hiding in the tank of a portable toilet at a yoga festival last week.

Kim Kobel of Boulder police says Luke Ivan Chrisco was arrested during an unrelated panhandling investigation Thursday. Police say an officer noticed his resemblance to the toilet suspect, and Chrisco was taken into custody after he was interviewed by a Boulder detective.

UPDATE:

The Daily Camera reports that a hearing today where Chrisco was expected to enter a plea has been delayed. Chrisco's lawyer is waiting for a mental health evaluation.

Chrisco faces misdemeanor charges of unlawful sexual contact and criminal invasion of privacy.
