Do i need to pay this parking ticket ?

Asked 8 months ago - Wheeling, IL

I was picking up a friend at the airport and i had to stop my car to call her to ask where she was. I parked my car in a no parking zone for less the 3 minutes. My phone says i made the call at 12:03 and my ticket was made out at 12:03. I was about to drive away before someone gave me a ticket. He wasn't a police officer either. He was the cities tow truck. Do i need to pay this ticket ?
