It’s unlikely you’ll be arrested. They will send a summons first, which is a letter telling you when you have to go to court. As long as you show up when your told and cooperate with the process, it’s very unlikely you’ll be arrested or jailed at any point. Then you’ll go through the whole court process and probably end up on probation. You really ought to work with a lawyer on this. If you and your family cannot afford an attorney, you entitled to have one appointed by the court.
