I was arrested 2 months ago for 273.5 or 273.5(a:PC),

I was arrested 2 months ago for 273.5 or 273.5(a:PC), corporal injury of spouse. I was given an arraignment date. I was bonded out for $50,000. I went to court 2 days before the arraignment because I was scheduled for surgery on the same day. The clerk ran a check on me but nothing came up. I was never given a case number. I received a letter from the clerk of the court. It stated in short that the District Atty has not filed a new case against me. I don't know why I was arrested. My wife did not want to press charges against me. But I was arrested. It's now been over 2 months. I don't know what to do. My wife has talked to the detective about my case and he said it would probably be dropped. My wife cannot even get a police report because its still an open case. What should I do?
