It is unusual for the police to ask you to come so they can issue you a citation. They may want to question you. Do not answer any questions or talk with them about the incident. I would call them and ask them to mail you any citation they have. If you do go in, have someone ready and able to help you get out of jail. If there is a charge against you you should hire an attorney.
