Your reason, while very understandable, is not a legal basis for failing to go to drill. While it may be an argument to gain sympathy from a board or the commander, it doesn't create an absolute defense to the allegation of AWOL or missing drill.
Now, the chances of being arrests are almost 0%. While it is technically true that command could enter an arrest warrant for you, this is so very rare that I haven't actually seen it happen in my career...I've just heard about it happening and legally know that I can happen.
The most likely result is a separation from the military for misconduct, resulting in either an Other Than Honorable or General discharge. Neither of those is really great to have. They have a long term effect on your career paths, but usually don't start messing things up until you are trying to break into upper management or higher level jobs. This is why most people don't feel any problems with the discharges until 10 to 15 years after they get them.
It's something to take into consideration, because you have to understand that, at best, ***** ***** here would keep you from getting an OTH and just make sure you get the General. You wouldn't get an Honorable discharge out of this situation.
