Prosecutors are seeking an arrest warrant as well as an increase in Kyle Rittenhouse’s bond after he allegedly violated the terms of his release, TMZ reported.

According to investigation by the Kenosha Police Department, the teen has been living at an address other than the one that is listed with the court since mid-December, and has long surpassed the 48 hours he had to update the information, consequently violating his bond. With Rittenhouse’s old address, prosecutors mentioned, the court is unable to correctly monitor his location.

The State of Wisconsin believes the Kenosha gunman is not compliant with bond conditions because the money didn’t come from him or his family, but a “dubious Internet fundraising campaign.” They are requesting that Rittenhouse’s bond be increased by $200,000 so he’d be incentivized to comply with the terms.

Rittenhouse was initially arrested for the fatal shootings of two men during a Jacob Blake protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin — a move he and his lawyers maintain was an act of self-defense. He was released on $2 million bond, but his behavior since then has been questioned by prosecutors in the case.

The 18-year-old, for example, was at a local bar with his mother earlier this month when he was spotted drinking beer and making white supremacists hand gestures. Prosecutors say he was also serenaded with a song that has become the anthem of the Proud Boys.

A Wisconsin judge modified Rittenhouse’s bail conditions of as a result of his actions. According to the new terms, the gunman “shall not knowingly have conduct with any person or group of persons known to harm, threaten, harass or menace others on the basis of their race, beliefs on the subject of religion, color, national origin, or gender.” He is also prohibited from possessing firearms and consuming alcohol.
