HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A University of Connecticut student has apologized in a video for an obscenity-laced tirade against food service workers who refused to sell him jalapeno-bacon mac and cheese.
Luke Gatti acknowledges in the video posted to YouTube that he was drunk. He says he’s ashamed of his behavior and has problems that he’s addressing.
Gatti, a 19-year-old freshman from Bayville, New York, is due in court Tuesday on charges of breach of peace and criminal trespass stemming from the Oct. 4 incident which was also captured on video.
Gatti was shown arguing with and eventually shoving a food service supervisor who said Gatti was refused service because he was carrying an open alcohol container.
Speaking of the manager, Gatti says in his apology video that no one deserves to be treated that way.
