If a probation officer or parole officer believes that you have violated any part of your probation, they may ask the court to issue a warrant for your arrest. Common probation violations include:
Failing a UA or drug test
Being charged with a new criminal offense
Failing to pay court-ordered fines
Failing to pay court-ordered restitution
Not remaining in contact with probation or parole officials
