MANSFIELD, Conn — A college student seen in a viral video demanding macaroni and cheese recently posted a new video on YouTube apologizing for his actions.

A video recently went viral of Luke Gatti at a food court at the University of Connecticut. When a manager refused to serve him because he was drinking, Gatti went into a nine-minute obscenity laced rant. He was later arrested.

Gatti, 19, was charged with second-degree breach of peace and first-degree criminal trespass, according to the Hartford Courant.

Gatti has admitted he was drunk, and said when he first saw the video it was a serious “wake-up call.”

“I’d like to apologize to the staff, including the manager,” Gatti said in the video. “He gave me so many chances to walk away and I didn’t listen to him.”

According to the Hartford Courant, Gatti was originally scheduled to appear in court Tuesday, but his case was continued to Nov. 3.
