Clock Exceeding Break Time; Irregular Behavior?

If I exceeded my break time by 3 minutes, and it was taken from the last block.
Is it an irregular behavior?
Will it affect my result date?

Any input is appreciated.

I believe it won't be an irregular behavior since you did it only once.

Nope, irregular behavior is acting weird in front of the cameras, standing up in the middle of a block and so on.

They just deducted your block time from your break time, which is ok and happens to several people, that is not irregular behavior.

No, I even asked them and they said don't worry, but I posted here to see what people said and if someone had the same experience.
