A video posted to YouTube yesterday shows 19 year-old UConn student Luke Gatti of Long Island launch into a drunken, gay slur-laden tirade at his school’s cafeteria manager after the manager denied him service because he was drinking in the cafeteria.
During his long rampage about how badly he wants some bacon jalapeño mac and cheese (which he’s totally willing to pay for), Gatti both verbally and physically assaults the manager. After noticing that he is being filmed he says, “This is going to be posted somewhere and you’re going to look like a f*cking tool. Because you’re a f*cking fag.” He also at one point calls him a “faggy cafeteria manager cafeteria manager cafeteria manager.”
The video has already amassed more than 150,000 views.
Gatti apparently has a history of assault, as Gawker notes, previously getting in trouble with the police at UMass Amherst last September when he was a student there. He reportedly told a police offer, “f*ck you nigger” before continuing, “F*ck you! I only said ‘f*ck you,’ … so f*ck you!” That incident ended with a disorderly conduct charge for the teen.
After the incident at UConn, Gatti was arrested by UConn police and charged with “breach of peace.” His court date is October 13. UConn says they are investigating the incident. They may expel Gatti if they find he has violated the student code.
