VERNON, Conn. — A former University of Connecticut student from Bayville was granted a form of probation after a drunken tirade over macaroni and cheese.
Luke Gatti, 19, told the judge at Monday’s hearing he is ashamed of his actions.
The Superior Court judge granted accelerated rehabilitation for Gatti, allowing for the charges of misdemeanor breach of peace and criminal trespassing to be dropped and putting him on probation for a year.StoryChef: Expel student in mac-and-cheese tiradeStoryLI student: I'm ashamed about mac-and-cheese tiradeStoryCollege kid from LI goes on mac-and-cheese tirade
The judge said Gatti already had paid a high price for his behavior on Oct. 4 when he belittled a food service manager in a confrontation that was recorded and widely viewed on the Internet.
Gatti is no longer enrolled at UConn. University officials have declined to say whether he was expelled or left on his own.
