30-Year-Old Who Refused To Move Out Of Parents’ Home Calls Cops On Dad Over Legos
from Daily Wire:
On Friday, a New York millennial who made headlines for refusing to vacate his parents' home was ordered by a judge to leave the residence after his parents were forced into taking him to court. Before leaving the home, though, Michael Rotondo called the cops on his father over some Lego toys.
According to Fox News, Rotondo, 30, told reporters that his dad would not let him search in the basement for his 8-year-old son's Legos, so he called the police. "Instead, the father offered to look for specific items and, if he found them, bring them out. The Legos were found after police arrived," reports the outlet.
Speaking of the Legos, an irritated Rotondo told the Post-Standard of Syracuse: "This isn't a game show. I don't have to guess what's behind Door No. 1."
After shoving his station wagon with his belongs, and calling the cops on his dad over Legos, the 30-year-old was briefly delayed in his departure from mommy and daddy — he ran into car trouble. "His car, which has a broken coolant system, took a few tries to start. During his car trouble, he told reporters he said goodbye 'more or less' to his parents before jumping into his rumbling station wagon," reports Fox.
"I gotta get going before that thing blows up," he yelled to reporters as he drove off, waving and honking his horn.
Mark and Christina Rotondo felt forced into taking legal action against their son last month because he refused to leave after numerous notifications — written and otherwise — to vacate the premises. The couple filed a petition in the Supreme Court of New York State and a judge eventually ordered Rotondo to leave on Friday.
Rotondo will apparently not be moving into his own place, though. After a brief stint at a Syracuse Airbnb, he'll be off to bunk with a distant cousin.
