Is a hard stop made at a stop sign probable cause?

Question Details: I was stopped for a DUI and at the preliminary hearing they said the reason for probable cause was that I made a hard stop at a stop sign didn't run it no tickets or traffic charges only probable cause is that I made a hard stop. Is that enough probable cause to pull me over and they didn't say that I was speeding when I came to this hard stop just almost missed it because it was dark and then they followed me for 6 more blocks with no traffic violations at all before they turned there lights on when i pulled into a gas station.
