HARTFORD — 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 said she couldn’t disclose why Gatti was no longer enrolled at the school because of federal law.

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 video widely viewed on the Internet. Gatti argued with a food service supervisor and shoved him.

Gatti apologized in a video he posted online.
