When my probation officer's files for a revocation hearing will I be arrested then, or on the court date of the revocation

Asked over 1 year ago - Hindman, KY

I am on felony probation and got another charge, even though it's only a misdameanor, my officer's said that if I am found guilty she will file for a revocation hearing. I was just wandering if I will be arrested as soon as she files for it, or will they wait till my court date for the actual hearing?
