The Daily Mail sets up the clip which has gotten nearly 2 million views overnight:
A drunk University of Connecticut student was arrested after he repeatedly refused to leave a cafeteria until he got some mac and cheese. But not just any mac and cheese – bacon jalapeno mac and cheese. Luke Gatti, 19, from Bayville, New York, was filmed as he was asked to leave the university’s Union Street Market in Storrs because he had entered with an open can of beer on Sunday. He was arrested at around 10pm and charged with breach of peace and criminal trespass with bail set at $1,500. He is due to appear in court on October 13. In the clip, the manager is seen calmly telling Gatti that he will not be served because he brought alcohol into the building, which is prohibited, and also because they are out of the dish Gatti is so desperate for. In the clip, the manager is seen calmly telling Gatti that he will not be served because he brought alcohol into the building, which is prohibited, and also because they are out of the dish Gatti is so desperate for. ‘Try Subway,’ the manager tells him. But Gatti – dressed in sweatpants, socks and sandals – refuses to comply and instead, is seen repeatedly hurling abuse at the manager, including a homophobic slur. When the manager asks his age, Gatti admits he is 19 and therefore has been underage drinking. And when he notices the person filming, he tells the manager: ‘This is getting posted somewhere and you’re gonna look like a f****** tool.
Gatti has previous arrests for assaulting a police officer and in a separate incident, for shouting the N-word at a police officer trying to break up a party.
