Can my car be towed if accused of parking "too close" to another vehicle and subsequently "blocking" an individual from exiting his car?

Question Details:

I was threatened by a 70+ year old male to have my car towed if I were to ever park "too close" to his car again. I took pictures of the cars and assuredly concluded that I had parked with more than enough clearance to allow this individual to safely open his door and leave his car. I tried explaining this to him but he responded with verbal assault, and assured that he'd be the baddest SOB I'll ever meet. Not to be presumptive but this individual appeared to be rather affluent and wouldn't have hesitated to take legal action against me had I pursued the argument.
