According to NBC News, the 20-year-old was arrested after an altercation with a police officer. On May 28, he was charged with battery of an officer and resisting an officer with violence in Boca Raton, Florida.

The New York native was going through treatment for alcohol and drug abuse at the Wellness Resources Center at the time of the incident, NBC reports. He reportedly became frustrated when he wasn’t allowed medication for his withdrawals and left the facility. Per NBC, Gatti returned nearly two hours later and screamed at staff members.

Authorities threatened to use a stun gun and took Gatti in for his own protection. According to the police report, Gatti said, “I just want to die,” while sitting in the backseat of the police car.

Gatti previously made headlines last year when he went on a curse-filled tirade at Union Street Market, an on-campus dining hall at UConn. He asked for jalapeño and bacon macaroni and cheese, but was denied service because he was intoxicated. In a video of the incident, which went viral, he could be seen shouting at a university food service supervisor and shoving him numerous times. He was later arrested.

Gatti’s antics even caught the attention of celebrities such as Jimmy Kimmel and Justin Theroux. In October 2015, the same month as the outburst, the actor wore a wig and recreated the market scene in a pre-taped video for Jimmy Kimmel Live!
