Getting a Ticket Without Your Knowledge

The front of my building has a similar set up of that of a hotel. I was returning home and pulling into the drive approaching the buzzer to be allowed into my parking garage. At the same time a gentleman and a woman were exiting my building. He stopped, looked at my car and continued to proceed across the drive through as I was continuing toward the buzzer – where I came to a complete stop. The actions occurred almost simultaneously. The gentleman stopped in his place and waited for me to pass the buzzer. When I passed the buzzer I rolled down my window and asked, “Is there a problem?” He yelled back, “Yeah I have a problem, you don’t know how to yield to pedestrians.” Being that I did not know who he was, I did not want to get into a confrontation so I did not say anything further, I rolled up my window and proceeded into my parking garage. This incident occurred a week ago and I have just found out he was an off-duty police officer. He cited me for Careless Driving, but he didn’t ticket me on the spot. The ticket will be arriving in the mail. Can he do that?
