Rubin arrived in Nepal on Friday and was taking a domestic flight the following day.
Dhakal says Rubin would be charged with violating the Public Offense Act. According to Government Administrator Basanta Raj Gautam, he could face six months in prison and a 10,000 rupees ($100) fine if convicted.
Rubin is being held at a detention center in the capital, Katmandu.
