Clutching his toys, including a large collection of Lego, the burly man-child honked and waved to reporters Friday morning as he pulled out of his parents' upstate NY home.
The jobless 30-year-old who was sued by his parents for still living at home has finally flown the coop, but not before delivering one last parting shot - by calling the cops on his dad.
CNY Central tracked down a Michael Rotondo from the Albany area who now lives in California, but is the same age as the one in Camillus (who goes by "Mike") and shows up in searches because they're both from Upstate New York. The Post-Standard of Syracuse reports that Rotondo left 2 ½ hours before the noon deadline set by a judge last week.
Rotondo had avoided TV crews staked out on the upstate NY road earlier Friday morning by leaving from the back, but returned around 9:30 a.m.in the passenger seat of a pickup truck.
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.
The eviction drama began on February 2 when the parents left their first note, saying Michael had two weeks to vacate his room at the family's Camillus home.

"I want to get out of my parents' house", the millennial replied.
"It's great not to have to be here anymore", he said told Syracuse.com outside his parents' garage Thursday. And sadly, other Michael Rotondos got caught in the crossfire - including one who also happens to hail from central NY, in Albany.
Officers arrived and the Lego bricks were found in the meantime, the newspaper said. He lost custody and unsupervised visitation with the boy in 2017.
Rotondo will reportedly be staying in an Airbnb while he figured out a long-term plan. "I don't have to guess what's behind Door No. 1".
Rotondo's parents haven't said much to the media.
On Friday, Rotondo stood outside the place he once called home but had some trouble before then.
