Michael Rotondo, evicted NY son, moves out after Lego row

It's a amusing situation for people named Michael Rotondo after a 30-year-old man in Central New York with the same name went to court to try and stop his parents from evicting him from their home.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Michael Rotondo, 30, was ordered to move out of his parents' home by Friday, June 1, after his parents took him to court.

He reportedly waved to reporters and honked his horn as he pulled out of the driveway eight years after moving back in, rent-free. Rotondo told the judge Tuesday he knows his parents want him out of their Camillus home, near Syracuse.

Rotondo called police Friday morning, complaining his father would not let him pack up a set of Legos.

But before leaving for good, he called 911 to rat out his dad, Mark - for allegedly not letting him search the basement for his 8-year-old son's Legos.

In other notes, they offered $1,100 to help their son find a new place to live and said they'd help fix his broken-down vehicle, which was parked on their property. It ended in court, where on May 22 a judge ruled Rotondo had to move out and would not be given a six-month extension.

The story gained worldwide attention after Rotondo's parents took him to court.

Rotondo said he is in the process of hauling the rest of his belongings out of his parents' Camillus, N.Y., house and into a storage unit.

He told reporters outside the house that he wanted no further contact with his parents, who last month won a legal battle to evict their son after he refused multiple requests to move out.

According to Rotondo, he is now battling for custody of his son, having lost custody and unsupervised visitation rights in 2017.

Rotondo planned to spend the next week at an Airbnb in Syracuse. "I don't have to guess what's behind Door No. 1". Rotondo says he spent the weekend getting ready to move by going to Lowe's to buy boxes for packing.
