Smaller employers will probably not even ask to see your DD 214 so it shouldn't really matter. Recommend drafting a short, accurate explanation for the event and having your attorney review it. You can provide it at the interview. Most employers appreciate hearing about any issues before they pop on a background check. That is a more likely scenario if you were arrested or booked and fingerprinted by law enforcement.
