The 30-year-old upstate NY man who was evicted from his parents' home has finally left, hours before a court-ordered deadline.
Thirty-year-old Michael Rotondo waves to the media as he leaves his parents' house in Camillus, N.Y., around 9:30 a.m. Friday, June 1, 2018.
He reportedly waved to reporters and honked his horn as he pulled out of the driveway eight years after moving back in, rent-free. Rotondo, whose eviction from his parents' home drew national attention finally left hours before a court-ordered deadline.
Rotondo's parents claim that they pleaded with their son, who had lived in their suburban NY house for eight years, to get a job, and even offered him money to find a place of his own. He told the gossip site that his father wouldn't give him toys for Rotondo's 8-year-old son (who is living with the child's mother), so he called the cops on him. Instead of letting him in, his father offered to look for specific items and bring them out if he found them.
When he was before Judge Donald Greenwood on May 22, he argued that the notices did not provide him with a "reasonable amount of time" to leave, citing a common-law requirement.

Rotondo planned to spend the next week at an Airbnb in Syracuse.
