Luke Vincent Gatti, a former University of Connecticut freshman whose drunken, profanity-laced tirade about jalapeno-bacon macaroni and cheese at the Storrs campus went viral via video, was given accelerated rehabilitation, according to NBC Connecticut.

Accelerated rehabilitation is a form of probation that means the case will be erased from Gatti's record if he avoids any legal trouble and complies with random drug tests. 

Gatti, who is 19, was originally charged with misdemeanor breach of peace and trespassing.

Gatti, of Bayville on Long Island, was arrested after an Oct. 4 outburst in the student union and accused of ranting at and shoving a university food-service supervisor who had refused to sell him jalapeno-bacon macaroni and cheese because Gatti was drinking in the Union Street Market dining facility.

The former student later issued an apology to the staff via video, students and his friends and family.
