Will my bond be revoked if I get arrested again?

After to muchy body kind of shut down I passed out behind the wheel and got a owi. I got 4/5 tickets that were never paid.

I am not trying to go to jail the tickets I have gotten today are Failure to provide insurance, driving while under suspension, and also careless driving.
