A University of Connecticut spokeswoman says a 19-year-old man is no longer enrolled at the school after going on a drunken, obscenity-laced tirade against food service workers for refusing to sell him jalapeno-bacon macaroni and cheese.

Spokeswoman Stephanie Reitz said Wednesday that Luke Gatti, a former freshman from Bayville, New York, was no longer a UConn student. She says she can't disclose why Gatti was no longer enrolled at the school because of federal law.

Many students on campus told Eyewitness News that Gatti leaving the school is the best outcome for him and the university.

"I don't think he should be forgiven because his behavior is just too out of line," said Zexi Ryn, a UConn students.

"I understand why people would forgive him and he did apologize but I just feel like this isn't the right atmosphere for him and he needs to get some help," said Sarah Nesci, also a UConn student.

Gatti didn't immediately return phone and Facebook messages Wednesday.

He was charged with breach of peace and trespassing in connection with the Oct. 4 outburst, which was captured on a video that was widely viewed on the Internet. Gatti argued with a food service supervisor and shoved him.

Gatti later apologized in a video he posted online and the employee forgave him

He is due in Rockville Superior Court during the first week of November to answer for the charges.

"I'd say what he did was unforgivable he made the choice to drink underage and he exploited it by walking into the union and wreaking havoc," said Connor McCaffrey, a UConn student.
