A probation officer can place you on a jail hold to investigate alleged law violations or rule violations.
The testimony of someone who claims to have seen you do something is not hearsay, and admissions you may have made to someone else that are against your interest would fall under a recognized exception to the hearsay rule.

This answer is provided for general information only. No legal advice can be given without a consult as to the specifics of the case.
Even if the evidence against you was hearsay, your probation officer can still hold you in custody for an allegation that you have violated your terms of supervision.
"Hearsay" is defined as a statement, other than one made by the declarant while testifying at the trial or hearing, offered in evidence to prove the truth of the matter asserted. The testimony of an eye witness is not hearsay, it is testimonial evidence.
Additionally, the rules of evidence, including the general rule prohibiting the use of hearsay and all of the numerous exceptions to this general rule, are not strictly followed in a revocation proceeding. Some "over the counter" medications are strictly controlled because they are used in the manufacturing process of controlled substances. You don't need a prescription for pseudoephedrine (Sudafed), but you must show your identification when you purchase it and you can only purchase individual user amounts. So, I'm not sure exactly what is going on in your question, but you might want to consider hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney and discuss the specific facts of your case with that attorney. Anything you say on a public website could be seen by law enforcement and prosecutors (or your agent).
