VERNON — A judge has revoked the special probation given to a former University of Connecticut student who went on a drunken tirade about jalapeno-bacon macaroni and cheese.

The Journal Inquirer of Manchester reports Luke Gatti pleaded under the Alford doctrine Monday to misdemeanor breach of peace and was fined $100. Under the doctrine, a defendant doesn’t admit guilt but acknowledges there’s enough evidence for a conviction.

He was also removed from the probation program, which could have resulted in the dismissal of charges if he stayed 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 online.
