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.
Michael Rotondo honked and waved to reporters Friday morning as he pulled out of the driveway of his parents' home in Camillus, New York.
The New York Post reported that Rotondo hasn't been on speaking terms with his parents and has said that he is unlikely to speak to them ever again. Local media report he left the house in Camillus, N.Y., just four hours before his high noon deadline to depart.
News crews recorded him packing up a pickup truck this week. 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.
Then, Rotondo turned his attention to his Volkswagen Passat, which his parents also wanted moved, and after a few false starts, he was able to get the vehicle moving though he had to hurry - he said the vehicle wasn't circulating any coolant.
But Michael Rotondo did not heed their deadlines, and his parents filed for an ejectment proceeding.
Rotondo remains steadfast in blaming his parents for the family rupture and their refusal to back him in his child custody battle.

His parents said it was time to go. And sadly, other Michael Rotondos got caught in the crossfire - including one who also happens to hail from central NY, in Albany. The Legos were found after police arrived.
"This isn't a game show", Rotondo said, explaining to the newspaper why he called police.
His parents had said goodbye "more or less", he told reporters. "I don't have to guess what's behind Door No. 1".
Michael - who hauled dozens of boxes of his junk into a storage facility Wednesday and Thursday - now plans to crash at an Airbnb he booked for about week until he can find something more permanent.
