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.
Rotondo's cousin reportedly helped him move out of his parents' NY home Friday morning. 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.
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.
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.
