Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

In order to revoke the probation, they have to prove he was there and violated his probation. This means the phone call is not enough, they need to put a witness in front of the court to revoke his probation. So, while they can file to revoke his probation, without an actual witness testifying in court, they do not have the justification to revoke his probation required by the court.
