He needs to contact his attorney handling his DWI case. They will know all the circumstances and can best answer these questions. If he has not hired an attorney, he needs to contact one ASAP.

You need to contact an attorney to go to the hearing with you. They very well may find out or already know about the DWI. You may have violated probation simply by not disclosing your arrest to the court. The Judge may issue a warrant and set a probation violation hearing.
