Can I put a lien on my neighbor's bond money?

Asked 10 months ago - Chicago, IL

I have a judgement against my neighbor for a dispute a few years back. He has no money so i was unable to collect. I just found out was just arrested for a felony DUI and posted a $20,000 bond. Is there a way I can put a lien on that bond money? Can some guide me on what to do?
