Rittenhouse, who was 17 years old at the time of the shooting, pleaded not guilty to all charges stemming from the August 23, 2020 bloodbath in Kenosha.
Rittenhouse was released on a $2million bail paid for mostly by supporters in November.
In a motion filed with Judge Bruce Schroeder, Kenosha County prosecutors asked that a new arrest warrant was issued.
It would see Rittenhouse’s bail be increased by $200,000, the Chicago Sun Times reported.
