Moochin' millennial finally leaves the nest after being evicted

Michael Rotondo, the 30-year-old man who became global news after his parents took him to court to force him to move out of home, has finally left the nest... but not before calling the cops on his dad over a fight about some Lego.

According to the Syracuse.com report, Rotondo moved all of his belongings from the home, including a Volkswagon Passat that had been sitting in his parents' driveway, untouched for months.

"I don't see why the judge wants to throw people on the street", Rotondo told reporters after the hearing.

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. 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.

They failed once again, however, so they reportedly offered their son $1,100 to "find a place to stay". They told a judge they'd given him five written notices asking him to leave and offering financial assistance if he moved out.

The story gained worldwide attention after Rotondo's parents took him to court.

The millennial's parents, Mark and Christina Rotondo, filed a petition in the Supreme Court of New York State claiming they've had enough of their son living under their roof.

Mr Rotondo said he wanted no further contact with his mother and father once he moved out of the property, which is 260 miles (420km) north of New York City.

Officers arrived and the Lego bricks were found in the meantime, the newspaper said.

"I gotta get going before that thing blows up", he said.

During his auto trouble, he told reporters he said goodbye "more or less" to his parents before jumping into his rumbling station wagon.

Rotondo remains steadfast in blaming his parents for the family rupture and their refusal to back him in his child custody battle.

"This isn't a game show", he said.

Rotondo's eviction is due to be completed by midday (Eastern Daily Time) today.
