Holstein objected, citing the Simley case.
Holstein also said Chic-Colbert has faced a string of charges relating to battery on women. That includes a July violation of a restraining order, when he allegedly "threatened to blow Woodson's brains all over the concrete," according to a complaint filed in magistrate court.
That complaint states that Chic-Colbert approached Woodson in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven and threatened to kill her.
Chic-Colbert, who has several teardrop tattoos under his eye, told Woodson that she "would be the next set of teardrops on his face," the complaint states.
Holstein noted that Chic-Colbert was also arrested on a wanton endangerment charge in August, when he allegedly held a gun to a woman's face. The charges were dismissed when the woman failed to appear in court.
Burglary, malicious wounding and domestic violence charges against Chic-Colbert were also dismissed, court records indicate.
Judge Zakaib said that Chic-Colbert's past suggests that he is abusive toward women, and denied the bond reduction.
"The defendant hasn't shown one scintilla of evidence to justify reducing the bond," the judge said.
