UConn Student Refuses To Leave Cafeteria Without Mac And Cheese, Gets Arrested (Video)

A University of Connecticut student was arrested on Oct. 4 after he reportedly demanded mac and cheese, and refused to leave the school cafeteria in Storrs, Connecticut (video below).

The student, identified as Luke Gatti, entered the school's Union Street Market with an open beer and proceeded to argue with the market’s manager, reports the Daily Mail.

Not surprisingly, the incident was filmed by a witness and placed on YouTube where it has gone viral.

"Just give me some f------ bacon jalapeno mac and cheese (unintelligible)," Gatti tells the manager.

The market manager informs Gatti that he cannot be served because he brought beer in the building and has alcohol on his breath, but Gatti responds with profanity.

At one point, Gatti tells the manager that he is 19, which would mean he is underage and should not be drinking.

Gatti pushes the manager twice, and several employees and students try to intervene. Later in the video, Gatti pushes the manager again, prompting a cook to take down the college student, who may have been inebriated.

The manager and the cook hold Gatti on the floor until a police officer arrives and handcuffs the college student who yells, "F---! I’m absolutely f-----! F---!"

Gatti was charged with breach of peace and criminal trespass; he has a court date scheduled for October 13, notes the Hartford Courant.

"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," UConn spokeswoman Stephanie Reitz stated, but she refused to address Gatti specifically because of privacy laws.
