|Parking Structure BS

So, I really hope this isn't too long and complicated, but I am extremely pissed off and I need advice? Maybe just reassurance that we will be ok? LOL.|
Last night my husband was leaving a parking structure, and right after he paid this parking police type guy (you know, not the real police, just like a rent-a-cop type guy) asked him to pull-over so he could talk to him. My husband agreed and got out of the car. The rent-a-cop said that someone had just come down and said that someone else had witnessed a grey car of the same make (my husband has a silver car, close enough I supposed) hit another car and just leave and he had to get my husband information. Rent-a-cop said that if someone in the structure complains that their car is damaged that we will get a ticket in the mail. My husband said "I did not hit anyone! Look at my car, check it all out, look at the bumpers there are no marks anywhere". So they looked all over the car, and rent-a-cop agreed that there was no evidence of an accident, but still said if someone complains of a hit-and-run that we will be getting a ticket in the mail. This car is pretty new, less than a year old. Rent-a-cop said that he will be watching the exit and if another car comes down with the same color and model in the next 30 minutes he will get their info as well.......
Now, here is a couple of issues that I see.
First of all, my husbands car is VERY common.
The person saw someone hit a car and then leave, so more than likely THAT CAR LEFT BEFORE the witness could get down there to complain!!!!!
They're going to watch the exit for 30 minutes? So someone hit a car, left, and then drove around in the structure for 30 minutes? That wouldn't make any sense.
I just don't know what to do guys. What if we get a ticket? We go to court to fight it? This is CRAP! In the 10 years my husband has been driving he's never been in any kind of accident, and has only gotten one ticket in his life back when he was 19 for going 5 over =/
What do we do? We took a picture of the cars bumpers, but I feel like now I just have to sit and wait for a ticket if it's coming.
***EDIT*** Apparently the only info they took was my husband's license plate. So whether he complied or not they would've been able to write that down as he drove away. If we do get a ticket or something in the mail, we will fight and I am sure there is no case.
Thanks for the help!!!
