30-Year-Old Man Finally Moves Out Of Parents’ House—But Not Before Calling The Cops Over Legos

Michael Rotondo reached his breaking point on Friday, and it was all over a box of Legos. The 30-year-old man has been making headlines in recent weeks after his parents sued him for refusing to move out of their home. A local judge sided with Rotondo’s parents on the eviction ruling.

On June 1, just before leaving his parent’s home for good, Rotondo called the police because his father would not let him retrieve his 8-year-old son’s Legos from the basement. The Post Standard of Syracuse reported that Rotondo’s father would not allow Michael back in the house when he returned to retrieve the toys, and instead insisted on getting the items himself.

The Legos were reportedly retrieved after the police arrived.

The 30-year-old moved out of his parent’s home in Camillus, New York, on Friday around 9:30 am, just hours before his court-ordered deadline.

Syracuse.com reports that Rotondo had some “false starts” before leaving. He initially left around 8 AM, but returned at 9:30 to pick up some remaining belongings. He then spoke to reporters, and “after a brief interview, in which he said his parents —who were home—had said goodbye ‘more or less,’ he jumped in his creaky car and took off for good.”

Rotondo has said he is relieved to leave his parent’s home, despite trying to buy himself six more months in the house in court.
