Should I take a ticket to court and fight it if I was mistakenly accused of speeding?

Question Details: I received a ticket last week. When I got the it, I was parked and exiting my car and a police car pulled up behind my and flashed its lights. The officer proceeded to approach me and raise his voice at me and yelled that I could have killed someone and how he saw me and it looked like I was going fast while he was going the opposite direction approx. 2-3 miles back. I was confused and did not know where the street he had just mentioned was until he I was unsure if I had been on the same street. He also then started to yell about how he should arrest me for the supposed 70 mph in a 40 mph zone and even went as far as to accuse me and the passenger in my car of being on drugs. He also asked to see identification for the passenger in my car. Should I take this to court and fight it?
