A 19 year old UConn student was arrested after a cafeteria refused to serve him macaroni and cheese with bacon and jalapeno peppers. The student was yelling obscenities while ranting about not being able to get his macaroni and cheese. The manager stated that the student was refused service because he was carrying an opened container of alcohol. Luke Gatti, who is the student in question, was clearly intoxicated and berated the employee with gay slurs. He at one point pushed the man and was attacked from behind by another employee who was heard saying “You don’t threaten my boss”. Gatti was later arrested and charged with second-degree breach of peace and first-degree criminal trespass.
The University is unable to comment on the situation due to federal privacy laws. However, the university stated in a release to Newsday that “Generally speaking, any UConn student found to have violated the provisions of the student code may face penalties imposed by the Division of Student Affairs that range from probation to expulsion.”
While Gatti was attending the University of Massachusetts last year he was he was arrested for disorderly conduct charges twice. In one incident he broke the hand of a police officer while being booked which led to an assault and battery charge.
