The judge has the authority to change bond at any time....they often treat assaults on police officers very seriously....so not too surprising that this happened....regardless of his previously clean criminal record.

the points of consideration for the judge in determining the bond are whether the defedant is likely to come to court dates after release....and the seriousness of the crime....
