I was involved in a traffic accident yesterday. I am accused

I was involved in a traffic accident yesterday. I am accused of running a red light. The other vehicle claims the light was green for her. The police officer said he is trying to contact a witness, but as of now, he has not talked to him. The office said after he speaks with the witness, he will issue a citation for running the red light to one of the drivers. This happened in Bradenton, Fl. And I am on vacation for PA. I'm staying in Cape Coral, Fl. The officer said he will not drive to Cape Coral, if he is issuing me a citation. Am I required to drive 85 miles to Bradenton, so he can give me the citation?
