A: One of the most important conditions to any probation is to not commit an offense against this or any other state. A DWI or DUI arrest is an allegation that a new offense was committed. Upon learning of this arrest, the Court may sanction your probation and reinstate, but more likely the State will file a Motion to Revoke your probation alleging the new offense as a probation violation. If that happens, a warrant will be issued for your arrest and you will be held at no bond until your hearing or other resolution is met. You will need an attorney to fight for reinstatement or to negotiate the best deal upon revocation.
