A: It all depends on the agency with whom you are on probation. If they check the arrest records regularly and act quickly, the VOP may issue before you get to bond out. The commissioner or magistrate could check your record when making your bond and see you are actively on probation and notify the PO and raise your bond. There is no way to answer your question easily. Best bet is to hire an attorney and have the attorney get a deal in place with your PO for you to turn yourself in on the Vandalism and the VOP warrant so you are not throwing bad money after good.
