I agree with everything Mr. Kleiman says, not much to add. Many times the appearance at the arraignment is waived if a NOA has been filed, also, if he is in custody in Sarasota County, the prosecutor was probably aware and advised the court of that fact.
Unfortunately, the State decides whether to press charges or not in Florida. If he is being arraigned tomorrow, that means that the State has filed charges. You should go to the arraignment and try to speak with the prosecutor. Tell him or her your position on the case.
If you can not talk with the prosecutor, write a letter to the State Attorneys Office explaining your position. Do not discuss the facts of the case in that letter.
Best of luck and stay safe.

Committing new crimes while on probation is one of the easiest ways to violate probation.

You could do jail time, but it is unlikely- that is assuming that there was not an accident, minor children in the car, very high BAC. You should be able to receive a probationary sentence. I recommend you hire a criminal defense attorney to go over the case with you to make sure your rights are protected.
If the court appearance on the 26th is your first court date, it should be an arraignment. It sounds like at this poiont you can not afford to hire a private attorney. Tell the judge this and you can ask to have the Public Defender appointed. Public Defenders are attorneys and should do a good job.
The court should then schedule another court date to give you and your attorney time to go over your facts and circumstances, likelihood of succeeding at trial or having the case dropped,...
