Loud Clicking Noise - Valet problem!!!

Last night we went out to eat and when the valet was bringing the car up as he began to stop there was this CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK! then the car stopped. My guess is that the dumbass hit the PARK button before the car was stopped, and perhaps there is a safety mechanism that prevents it from catching if the car is still moving? Anyone have any knowledge on this, and could it have damaged my transmission? Thanks!

Goto your profile and fill in your car info, it will help people answer you ?'s
Putting the trans in park while still in motion is of course a bad thing, there is the chance of breaking the trans pin. (PARKING PIN) If you don't hear anything odd you should be ok.
