A University of Connecticut student has gotten into a confrontation with a campus food court manager who wouldn't let him buy macaroni and cheese with bacon and jalapeno peppers and has been arrested.

An obscenity-laced video shows 19-year-old freshman Luke Gatti arguing with and shoving the manager on Sunday.

Gatti had been trying to buy the mac and cheese at the university's student union in Storrs. Police and the manager say he was refused service because he had an open alcohol container.

The 9-minute video shows Gatti being tackled by another employee, being arrested by police and spitting at the manager before being led away.

Gatti is from Bayville, New York. He's charged with breach of peace and criminal trespass. He's due in court Oct. 13. He hasn't returned a phone call seeking comment.
