traffic ticket for leaving scene of accident

My 18 year old son (truck is registered in my name) was given a ticket for leaving the scene of an accident. He had been at a friends and left the lot at 12:30 AM. The next day as we were leaving his school, I saw damage on the front pass. side. Since the school has cameras, the films could be viewed next day. I also called police to say truck has either been hit at school or apt. parking lot the night before. Would be clear the next day. The next AM, police came to door looking for my son with his broken parking light plastic in a baggie. He spoke to officer and was written ticket. He and his friend who was in car when he parked at apt. are adament that he backed into park. space because no cars were on either side. Officer said my son hit the other vehicle, based on his experience and what he saw at scene. If that were so, we would never have asked to view camera films in school OR called police to report our truck being hit. My son and his friend are the only witnesses. What do we do?
