Handicap parking space

I was at a store this weekend making a quick purchase and items were to be pick up at the front of the store. I parked in the handicap space while my father went into the store to pay for the items we were picking up. The parking lot was under construction, therefore; I pulled into the handicap space with my the engine on waiting and ready to move out as soon as my father come out of the store. In the meantime, I saw a police office giving tickets to other vehicle about 15 yards from where i was parked. So I moved out of the handicap space, just about to pull up in front of the store to pick up my father and the items we purchased. The police office saw me back out of the handicap space completely, he rushed over and demanded that i need to pull back into the handicap space so that he can write me a ticket. To avoid any confrontation I respected the office and move back into the space. Was this situation handled appropriately, according to the law?
