QuoteMore graduates are reluctant to leave the comforts of their childhood home, especially with rent and house prices on a tear. But one couple has had enough. Mark and Christina Rotondo, a couple living in Camillus, N.Y., have left a series of eviction requests for their 30-year-old son Michael and, having failed to shift him, have turned to the courts to help them out.
Quote from: Steve on Jun 01, 2018, 06:56 pmUpdate: Evicted son Michael Rotondo departs 2 1/2 hours early; calls cops on dad over toys Story LinkThirty-year-old Michael Rotondo left his parents' house around 9:30 a.m. today, 2 1/2 hours before a court-ordered eviction deadline.He even took his broken-down Volkswagen Passat five-door with him. Rotondo, who had planned to leave around 8 a.m., instead sneaked out the back while TV cameras rolled in front of the 408 Weatheridge Drive house.But he still had to come back for a few belongings, including the Passat -- a vehicle his parents cited in their eviction court papers.So Rotondo arrived back at the house around 9:30 a.m. in the passenger seat of a pickup truck. He loaded a cooler and some garbage bags of items into the pickup truck, then turned his attention to the car.He'd tried to take the plates off the car earlier in the morning -- he still didn't have the title -- he explained, but decided to move the car out of his parents' driveway for the first time in months.After some false starts, the Passat started with a jump from the pickup truck. But Rotondo warned that he needed to go quickly because the car wasn't circulating any coolant."I gotta get going before that thing blows up," he said.So 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.He waved and beeped at reporters while driving off.Rotondo has expressed relief at leaving his parents' Camillus house, despite trying in court to buy himself six more months at home. An Onondaga County Supreme Court Justice ordered him out by noon today.The drama of an adult son being evicted by his parents in court captured attention around the world. A Syracuse.com Facebook Live video of Rotondo packing up his belongings Wednesday has drawn 80,000 viewers as of this morning.But -- like with everything in this saga -- Rotondo's departure came with drama, this time involving the police.Rotondo said he called the cops because he believed his son's Legos were in the basement and his dad -- who is evicting him -- wouldn't let him look for them. Instead, the father offered to look for specific items and, if he found them, bring them out.Rotondo said that wasn't good enough and called police. While the police were there, the Legos were located and there was no further incident."This isn't a game show," Rotondo said, explaining why he called police. "I don't have to guess what's behind Door No. 1."Rotondo lost custody and unsupervised visitation with his 8-year-old son in 2017. He's said that the eviction from his parents' house is connected with his battle to get time with his son back.Rotondo said he still believes that his parents have possession of an etching that belongs to him worth several thousands of dollars. He plans to file a lawsuit against his parents to get that artwork back. Rotondo shared with Syracuse.com | The Post-Standard his plans once leaving the family's Camillus home:He'll take his dirty laundry over to a distant cousin's house, then get a lift to a laundromat.And Friday night, Rotondo said he'll spend his first night away from home at an Airbnb in Syracuse.Rotondo said he's paid for a week at the Airbnb in Syracuse. He credited noted conspiracy theorist and radio show host Alex Jones for providing the $3,000 needed to pay for a rental and other costs. (Jones' check from Rotondo's May 25 appearance cleared in time, Rotondo said.)After a week of in the Airbnb, Rotondo is planning on moving in with the distant cousin, he said.That cousin, Anthony Mastropool, came to Rotondo's rescue this week after hearing about the evicted son's situation on Alex Jones' Infowars.Mastropool said that he realized that Rotondo was a neighbor. And, after talking to Rotondo's mother, Christina, he discovered they were actually distant blood relatives.Mastropool loaned his pickup truck Wednesday to help Rotondo move his belongings into storage. And he offered to help Rotondo further.Mastropool, who has overcome a brain injury, said he could relate to Rotondo's story of hardship.Rotondo said he's got more interviews lined up after moving out. And he recently sold pictures of his bedroom during packing-up to tabloid news site TMZ.(more at link)
