Fmr. UConn student who went on drunken mac and cheese rant arrested in Florida
BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) – A former University of Connecticut student who went on a drunken, obscenity-laced tirade about jalapeno-bacon macaroni and cheese has been arrested in Florida after an altercation with a police officer.
Luke Gatti was charged May 28 in Boca Raton with battery on an officer and resisting an officer with violence.
A message left at Gatti's home Tuesday wasn't immediately returned.
Last year, the 20-year-old former UConn student from Bayville, New York, was arrested over his Oct. 4, 2015, outburst in the Student Union. He ranted at and shoved a university food service supervisor for refusing to sell him the macaroni and cheese.
The altercation was caught on video and was widely viewed online. (WARNING: The following video contains offensive language. Viewer discretion is advised.)
Gatti was put on probation and released his own video in which he apologized for his actions.
