Okay what is your question? In terms of what will happen? It depends on a number of factors, including your friend's criminal history?
What should your friend do next?
Contact private criminal defense counsel -- try www.attorneypages.com and check his or her record at the North Carolina State Bar.
Although I do not practice law in the State of North Carolina, here are my initial impressions. The general rule is that bail can be revoked or increased based upon the judge's discretion, and certainly if a new crime is committed while the person is free on bond. I suggest that your friend hire a criminal defense attorney to appear at his next court date who is prepared to make a bond argument on behalf of your friend in the interest of keeping him out of jail (i.e. maintaing his current bond) as well as obtaining the most favorable resolution to these matters as possible. Good luck
