Can an officer give you a driving citation if you were out of your car and almost to your door?

Question Details:

I pulled into my parking space in front of my house. I exited the vehicle and was headed to my door when a cop did a you turn and flipped his lights on. He got out of his car and asked me to come over. I did and he said he was pulling me over. After running my license he wrote me a ticket for driving on a suspended license which Ididn't know about because apparently my insurance had lapsed at some point. I'm wondering if this can stick in court since I was not actually driving the vehicle?
