What are My Options

In a competitive auction partner bids 5D. His LHO puts the 5C card on the table. Partner says no and he promptly puts the 5S card on the table. I say stop we need a director. The director comes over and asks what he intended to bid. He said 5C. The director asks whether I accept 5C. I said may I accept 5S. The director said no that he could bid 6C or pass if I don't accept the bid. If he passed his partner would be barred from bidding. I thought I should have been able to accept the 5S bid. This seems to be one of those murky situations brought about by the ACBL's introduction of "a comparable bid".
