What happens if you get arrested and don't get your fingerprints or mugshot taken? 3 Answers as of August 05, 2014

I received a citation for misdemeanor 647(b), my arraignment date came and passed. I was not charged in the card and thus, not fingerprinted. Does this mean it was an arrest or detention?
