Yes, unfortunately probation can revoke him for this, which is why they lodged a hold. He has a technical violation and two misdemeanor charges. If it were just the drinking, probation may be lenient, but what probation will actually do will depend on what happens with the two misdemeanors. It all will come down to whether probation thinks there is any point in still working with him.
