As a general rule you would be entitled to proper notice IAW your states laws. An owner/LL has NO POWER TO EVICT. Only a court does.
You did not say how long it was before he could no longer handle the situation, I suppose he could argue you were a mere guest and no notice required if you were only there a day or so. However, on the circumstances as you describe, I think you have a strong argument that you are a tenant and you are entitled to full protection afforded your status (at-will/month to month)--which means 30 days written notice.
The fact that police (who usually decline to involve themselves in a civil matter like this) said you only had 7 days, tells me that there may be additional facts that you did not post. Recommend you see a local landlord tenant attorney ASAP to determine your rights under ALL the circumstances.
