Fmr. student in mac and cheese tirade video arrested in Fla.

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- 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 University of Connecticut 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.

When I was his age, a punk like this would not touch a school employee or policeman because his peers would have knocked his bad self on the floor before it could happen.
I've seen dudes use bad language around girls and got the heck knocked out of him. Happen so fast you didn't know which guy hit him.
Teachers had no worries because they would do the same and knew if they didn't one of their students would handle it.

I must have missed that one. But it's good to know we have idiots graduating from our Universities. Now I'll know the employee base to avoid hiring from...

The kid was thrown out of UMass. Then he was thrown out of a Connecticut College. Now he is in Florida

Pretty obvious: spoiled rich kid whose parents just keep sending him to other colleges rather than fix the problem. After being thrown out of his first college I would've brought them home and made him go to the community college until he straightened out. The rich NY parents are enablers.
