I am a New York city cab driver. I was dropping a passenger in queens one-way street where the passenger took little extra time to pay the fare and get out of the cab. While the passenger getting off police officer blew his siren so I got off the car to help the passenger to remove his luggage faster so I can move the car. while i remove the luggage, the officer came to me and took my license and wrote me a ticket for disorderly conduct (240-20-5). Do i have any defenceI couldnt move any faster as the passenger was getting off the car. There were two passenger and one is already out and the door was open besides the passenger was arguing over the fare being too much. I was so nervous at almost end of my 12 hour shift. Passengers fare fare dispute and police officers accusation. I couldnt move any faster besides car was just before the intersection (stop sign) nowhere to go plus there is anywhere to pulled over. I didnt want to put the passenger in a dangerous situation. I was trying to explain to the officer and his answer was "it wasn't his problem - the passengers safety or the passenger paying me the fare"
