A 19-year-old University of Connecticut student was arrested Sunday night after a drunken argument involving mac and cheese. A video of the incident posted Monday has more than 1.6 million views and includes the lines, "Just give me some f---ing bacon jalapeno mac and cheese" and "I'm very hungry, man." Luke Gatti—who was being denied mac and cheese because he was allegedly intoxicated and carrying a container of alcohol, which is against campus policy—also hurls slurs and gets physical with workers at the campus eatery in the nine-minute video before finally being taken down by one of the workers and then arrested as he yells, among other things, "Let me get my shoes. What the f--- happened to my shoes?" He was charged with trespassing and breach of peace, the Hartford Courant reports; other students have been tweeting that he was also expelled.
