A warrant could be issued for your arrest. If you cannot be there on time I would call the court clerk and let them know. Obviously, your court date should be your highest priority.

It will depend on how late you are, your reason for being late and the judge presiding over your case. most judges will give a person/defendant some time to appear before doing anything. Worst case scenario is that a bench warrant will be issued by the judge for your failure to appear.

A warrant may have gone out already. That's what could happen.
