Yes. In fact, being arrested in any state is a violation of informal probation (the only difference is, if it is in another state the prosecutor/court may not find out).

If they find out about it, yes - you can be violated for a new law violation.

    ANY conviction, anywhere, is a violation. Arrests could also be a violation of your violate no law probation. Try to make sure you arent convicted. Unless you know how to effectively represent yourself in court against a professional prosecutor intending to convict you, hire an attorney who does. If this is in SoCAL courts, and if youre serious about hiring counsel, feel free to contact me.

    Yes, they may. (It wouldn't be the fact that you were arrested that makes you violate your probation. You've only violated probation if you committed the act you were arrested for.)

    Yes. You may be found in violation of informal court probation if you were arrested in any county or state. This does not mean that you will be held to a probation violation but the da may charge you with a probation violation if they choose.
