The 30-year-old man ordered by a judge to move out of his parents’ home has finally fled the coop, but not without one last act of aggression against his father — and yet another abuse of law enforcement resources.
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. Michael has been living with them for eight years since losing a job, and they had made several efforts to get him out before taking the case to a judge – including offering him over $1,000 to offset moving costs.
Rotondo complied with the court order and moved out of the home Friday morning. But before he left, he called 911 to report that his father had refused to let him search the basement for his son’s Lego toys, Syracuse.com reports.
The deadbeat millenial reportedly lost custody of his son in September for reasons not known, and has been fighting his parents’ attempts to get visitation rights to their grandchild.
Rotondo’s father reportedly offered to search for the toys and return any he found, but that wasn’t enough, and the man instead got the police involved. After officers arrived to the home outside Syracuse, the Lego toys were found in the basement.
According to the Syracuse.com report, Rotondo moved all of his belongings from the home, including a Volkswagon Passat that had been sitting in his parents’ driveway, untouched for months. He was able to get the car moving with the help of a jump-start from a friend.
Rotondo will reportedly be staying in an Airbnb while he figured out a long-term plan. As CrimeOnline previously reported, Rotondo was paid $3,000 to appear on the Alex Jones show “Infowars” last week, but he does not appear to have secured a job.
Earlier this week, Rotondo called 911 after an unknown person reached him on his cellphone and called him a “loser.”
