If you haven't been arrested now, you likely won't be arrested at your preliminary hearing -- unless the Magisterial District Judge decides to set a bail amount that you can't satisfy at the hearing (which can happen if a defendant acts like a jerk in court). Disorderly conduct and harassment are non-traffic summary offenses and they are written up on a Summons slip just like a traffic ticket. Arrests for these offenses are uncommon.

You are lucky you are only being charged with harassment against the police officer: if there was any physical touching, it's possible to charge you with aggravated assault against a police officer which is a felony! My advice to you is to hire counsel quickly, cooperate and put these behind you quickly before someone changes their mind and charges you with MORE. Best of luck to you.
