On probation for a DUI; I wasnt drunk

Customer Question

I'm on probation for a DUI, I was arrested for disorderly conduct: alcohol, I wasn't drinking, the only thing I did was stop a fight between people that were drinking. I don't know what is going to happen to me!
Additional Information:
This is in Orange County, California. I was thinking of just getting a public defender since I didn't drink and they gave me a drunk in public for no reason.

If you are in violation of your probation, the judge can revoke your probation and sentence you to up to six months. Also, you may incur additional penalties for the new offense if convicted.
