If you didn't have anything to do with the incident, I'm wondering why you would "refuse to get" your prints taken. If your concerns are with law enforcement obtaining a set of your fingerprints for filing purposes, then my reaction would again be what are your worries? The only cause for concern would be if you committed crimes in the past which would be linked when your known fingerprints enter the system. And of course the only cause for concern in the future would be if you committed a crime in the future. Bottom line: don't break the law so you don't have to worry.
And yes, if you are a suspect in a crime with eye-witness testimony, they law enforcement officials can get a warrant and take your fingerprints. If you refuse, local law and judges decide your fate. I know some would let you sit in jail and think about it for a while; some simply order you to comply... but it depends on your state law.
