The 30-year-old man whose May 22 court appearance and subsequent eviction from his parents’ suburban home drew national attention finally left Friday, hours before a courtorder­ed deadline. The move came with financial help from right-wing radio host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. Michael Rotondo honked and waved to reporters as he pulled out of the driveway of his parents’ split-level ranch in Camillus, New York. He said his parents had said goodbye, “more or less.” Mark and Christina Rotondo brought the court case

against their son after several eviction letters offering money and other help were ignored. They offered him $1,100 “so you can find a place to stay” and nudged him to get a job. “There are jobs available even for those with a poor work history like you,” one letter they sent him reads. In court, Rotondo refused the judge’s request to work things out with his parents. He said he plans to spend the next week at an Airbnb in Syracuse, and credited Jones with providing a $3,000 check to cover rental and other costs.
