You absolutely can. Your Pretrial Services Case Manager will send a report to the District Attorney notifying them of your hot UA's and the District Attorney will file a Motion to Revoke Bond. If this happens you will be arrested and a new bond will be set in your case. If your bond is revoked in Weld County and a new bond is set it is usually twice the amount of the original bond.
