If my vehicle was parked in a free non-designated parking spot, does the apartment complex have the right to tow my vehicle?

Question Details:

I had a leasing agreement with that ended over 4 months ago. I had vehicle that I left with another resident on the property in a non-designated parking spot and it was towed about 2 weeks later. Since the fees with the towing company were too expensive I decided to leave the vehicle. The MVD is now trying to charge me a $500 car abandonment fee. What can I do to remove this fee?
