According to the Huffington Post, here is the following info:

A Colorado man was arrested on Friday after allegedly leaving the trail at Yellowstone National Park, approaching the Old Faithful geyser and then appearing to urinate or attempt to urinate into it. 

Gabriel Villalva, 27, was caught on video at the edge of the geyser. A park ranger could be heard yelling at him to return to the boardwalk, where tourists are required to remain while visiting the geyser. Villalva largely ignored the commands, stood before the rim, and at one point appeared to urinate. 

“He’s peeing!” a bystander said in the video. “I don’t even know what to say.”
