If you did not hit the bicyclist then more likely then not he would not be able to have the police issue a citation. The key here is whether you had anyone with you in the car at the time and the course of the exchange between you and the bicyclist after the incident. If it was fairly civil and then he commenced chasing you, it may be that he discovered damage to his bike or body from the near miss if it caused him to crash.
If you do receive a citation, contact an attorney as soon as possible. If I can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
