Judge Revokes Probation In UConn Mac And Cheese Case

VERNON, Conn. (AP) – A Connecticut Superior Court judge has revoked the special probation given to a former UConn student who went on a drunken tirade over macaroni and cheese.

The Journal Inquirer of Manchester reports (http://bit.ly/2aSh5Gs ) that Luke Gatti pleaded guilty Monday to misdemeanor breach of peace and was fined $100, after Judge John Farley removed him from the probation program known as Accelerated Rehabilitation.

One condition of the program, which could have resulted in the dismissal of the charges, was that he stay out of trouble.

But Gatti was arrested at a Florida substance-abuse rehabilitation center in May and charged with battery on a police officer.

Gatti was charged at UConn last October after he belittled a food service manager in a confrontation that was recorded and widely viewed on the Internet.
