A 30-year-old man who made headlines last week after he was ordered by a judge to vacate his parents' NY home has officially left the residence, but not before calling the police on his father regarding some missing Legos.
Michael Rotondo honked and waved to reporters as he pulled out of the driveway of his parents' split-level ranch in Camillus, N.Y., 2 1/2 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.
Instead, Mark had offered to search for specific items and if he finds them, he'll return them, Michael said. After officers arrived to the home outside Syracuse, the Lego toys were found in the basement.
During the court case, Mr Rotondo, who represented himself, argued he should be allowed to live with his parents for another six months.

The improved braking distances raised the Model 3's overall score enough for the vehicle to be recommended. Rather, he said that the issue could very well be resolved via an over-the-air software update.
Adding to the confusion is the "other" Rotondo is also looking for a home, though it's in California and he's doing it with the support of his parents. He's said that the eviction from his parents' house is in retaliation for his losing visitation and that he was a good father.
His parents said it was time to go.
Rotondo will reportedly be staying in an Airbnb while he figured out a long-term plan.
Michael Rotondo has told local media he is battling for custody of his son. And sadly, other Michael Rotondos got caught in the crossfire - including one who also happens to hail from central NY, in Albany.
"This isn't a game show", Rotondo said, explaining to the newspaper why he called police. "I don't have to guess what's behind door number one".
Greenwood ruled in favour of Rotondo's parents, Mark and Christina, setting into motion the 30-year-old's eviction.
