When charged with an offense in California you must be booked. It consists of fingerprints and a mug shot. If you are arrested its done at the jail. If you are cited and released its done at a police station.
While it may not make judges too happy I usually tell clients to wait until after a first court appearance to be booked. That way if something happens and the DA decides not to charge the case, the FBI does not get your fingerprints and mug shot.
