Yes, since you are on DWI probation, getting any alcohol-related citation would be a probation violation. That is particularly so because an open-bottle ticket is for having an open alcohol container in your car: i.e. the last thing (other than actually driving drunk) that anyoone on DWI probation should be doing.
