In September , Gatti, then a student at UMass, was arrested twice for disorderly behavior. The incidents in Amherst resulted in Gatti agreeing to enroll in a pretrial program instead of serving time, the Hartford Courant reported in December.
He received a year of probation for the mac and cheese incident. Gatti was arrested on May 27 in Boca Raton on charges of battery on an officer and resisting an officer with violence, according to booking records. The clerk in Rockville said his plea was strictly a Connecticut matter.
Gatti was arrested last Oct. UConn police said an intoxicated Gatti walked into the Student Union at night, looking for the gourmet jalapeno macaroni and cheese, a popular menu item at the food court.
Gatti was asked to leave because of his drunkenness and wound up in a verbal and physical confrontation with a manager, police said. Police intervened and arrested him, according to an arrest report.
The tirade and subsequent scuffle was captured on video and went internationally viral on YouTube. Gatti also apologized in a YouTube video.
