Finger printing is just a means of identification.

It is not legally necessary, just helpful if there is every a question about your identity. During the collection of evidence, they collect many redundant forms of identification to protect against any lapse and there is always the arresting officer's testimony.

Is it something that can be raised during a defense? Sure.

Does is automatically destroy a DUI case? No.
