Now, at the time of the incident, the man who I rear-ended said everything was fine, and not to worry. However, today an officer showed up at my door saying he later went to the station and filed a report. He claimed that he was having back pains (which I think is fabricated, since the collision was so weak it was almost as if you wouldn't have known it occurred had you not heard a noise - and his kids were totally fine). At the same time, the officer issued me a ticket for following too closely.
Is there anything I can do to fight this, or any possible defence I could use? If you need me to write a more detailed account of the events I can, I'm just currently at work so I'm flying through this.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
