Craig Campbell, 19, was charged with inciting the riot at Athens Drive High School on April 12, and faced a judge for the first time Tuesday.
The judge upped Campbell's bond by 50 percent.
"Fifteen thousand is the minimum. Right now it's set at ten. I'm going to raise it to $15,000 secured on the felony," Wake District Court Judge Keith Gregory told Campbell.
Campbell is the third man to face the rioting charge.
Previously, Jermaine Canteen, 18, and Khadeem Fleming, 21, were arrested earlier this month following the melee.
None of the three men are Athens Drive students
Videos of the massive brawl went viral.
Police say 25 people were wildly throwing punches.
Some of them were students at the school and have been charged with misdemeanors and violating school policy.
Last week, some of their parents held a news conference complaining that the parking lot where it all went down wasn't properly supervised by school staff.
Athens Drive High School parents say they're upset that students who protected themselves during fight were suspended
Parents of some Athens Drive High School students who have been disciplined for their involvement in a fight outside the school last week gathered Thursday to express their concerns about the way the incident was handled.
They also said their children were victims who had come to aid of a classmate who was targeted by the three men who came from off campus.
Many are reportedly good students whose college careers may be threatened by the charges against them.
