If there was noone there to see it, the guy could later say for example that both of you were sitting still and you backed up or rolled back into him. Heck, he could end up giving you false information and you'll never see or hear from the guy ever again.

Seems shady as heck to let something like this just go between the two drivers.
Welcome to California..it is legal for police to refuse to respond to a non-injury collision.
Moral of the story..If you want a cop to respond, always say you are injured to the 911 dispatcher..
