Drunk Student Gets Arrested After Cafeteria Meltdown: 'I Want My Bacon Jalapeno Mac and Cheese!'
A 19-year-old college student has been arrested after refusing to leave a campus cafeteria until they gave him "bacon jalapeno macaroni and cheese."
Luke Gatti went to Union Street Market at the University of Connecticut on Sunday night after he had apparently been drinking, and got into a physical and verbal fight with an employee who refused to serve him. A bystander filmed him yelling at the man and later uploaded the footage to YouTube.
"You're a f***ing idiot," he tells the employee in the footage.
The man responds: "You can't come in here with an open bottle of booze!"
But the student refuses to leave until he has been served. He told the man: "Please just let me get some mac and cheese man, I'm very hungry!"
He responded: "You're not welcome here, now please leave."
In the nine-minute footage, which was posted to YouTube on Monday, Gatti appears to push the employee before another man steps in to stop him. When a female employee approaches and tells the student to leave, he still refuses to go. Even when staff tell him they are calling the police, he stays put and demands his mac and cheese.
"What are you, a f***ing idiot?" he tells the original employee.
After shoving the employee again, Gatti gets knocked to the ground, where he is held until police arrive and put handcuffs on him as he continued to shout.
Gatti, from Bayville, New York, was charged with breaching the peace and criminal trespass. His bail was set at $1,500. He is due in court on October 13.
A spokesperson for the university said they could not discuss disciplinary action against the teenager, citing privacy concerns.
"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," they said.
