Is my parking violation invalid because the vehicle description was incorrect?

Question Details: I recently slid my car into a ditch and was unable to move it out myself this left about 1-2 feet of it overhanging on the street, which I should note that it's a neighborhood street that is seldom traveled it was 3am in the morning too. Anyways, I put on my hazard lights, locked the car, and walked to my house to get my brother who has a truck and chain. My phone was dead, else I'd have stayed with the car and called instead. When we returned to the scene, less than 20 minutes later, there were 2 police cruisers and a city-contracted flatbed ready to take it to impound. On the citation, they listed the vehicle as a 4-door when it is a 2-door. Will this discrepancy allow me any legal leverage or should I just pay the citation?
