Your situation is one where many factors can come into play. Yes, your blood will be analyzed and if the state decides to charge you will eventually be possibly arrested and then charged. As for your probation, it would depend on the terms and conditions, but an arrest would certainly violate.
The best defense here is a good offense - see an attorney who can advise on how to handle probation, analyze the incident itself and see if there were any lapses in training and protocol by police, and prepare a defense ahead of any charge, if need be.
