The question should be posted on the Arizon section. California attorneys not licensed in AZ cannot give legal advice in that state. This site is also not a forum to provide legal advice. Having said that, I believe that AZ citations will show up on your driving record. You should contest the citation. In California, I've had cases where I would show the officer that this is my client and another person was driving. The cases against my clients were dismissed. I don't know what AZ does, but it's possible it could be similar. You should consult and retain an AZ attorney. You want to protect your driving record.
