  • Seahawks rookie WR Tate caught trespassing in donut shop over the weekend

    NFL Star Rookie in Shady Donut Shop Debacle
    Originally posted Jun 8th 2010 10:40 AM PDT by TMZ Staff

    Seattle Seahawks rookie wide receiver Golden Tate had an encounter with police this weekend, but this story has a serious twist ... because it all went down inside a donut shop.

    TMZ has learned the former Notre Dame football star was caught trespassing inside a Top Pot donut shop in Bellevue, Washington at 3 AM Saturday morning.

    Cops would only confirm that Tate was given a "trespass warning" -- and was not arrested -- but they wouldn't expand on why the 21-year-old was inside the store while it was closed.

    We spoke to the manager of the Top Pot shop ... who said he would not be commenting on the matter. On a related note, Top Pot recently inked a deal to become the official coffee and donut partner of Qwest Field -- home of the Seattle Seahawks.

    Calls to Tate's rep have not been returned.

    This story is rather amusing...

    Golden Tate and the lure of Top Pot maple bars
    Posted by Danny O'Neil

    Seahawks rookie Golden Tate answered questions about the incident over the weekend. He was not cited nor arrested, but he did receive a warning for trespassing after he fell victim to the lure of Top Pot Doughnut's maple bars.

    Now, one thing to clarify. Tate lives in the building where the donut shop is located.

    "A buddy made the mistake of going in, grabbing a couple," Tate said. "We ate them. Nothing much to the story other than that.

    "Very apologetic to it. This is the wrong type of media I want to bring to the organization. I apologize to the team, the coaches and even Top Pot. As of now, I think that's the end of it."

    There was no ticket, just a warning Tate said.

    "Just kind of said, 'Don't do it again,' " Tate said. "Which I won't."

    So, was it the smell that lured him in?

    "When I got here, it was one of the first things I had," Tate said. "I heard about it. They're irresistible. It was kind of a foolish mistake that won't happen again. If you ever want some maple bars, that's the place to go."

    As for any lessons learned from the incident?

    "I'm very embarrassed to even have my name a part of this," he said. "Before now, I've never had some trouble in any type of school or anything. I'd rather learn on this than have something a few months or years down the road that's a lot bigger and me being arrested or cited for something. So this is definitely a lesson learned for me, and next time, I'm just going to have my buddy go in and buy them instead."

    Of course that will mean waiting until the shop opens.

    As for the coach, well he understands the temptation. It was the timing of his receiver that was at issue, not his taste or sense of smell.

    "I'm not disappointed in a guy being in a donut when they've got maple bars like Top Pot has," coach Pete Carroll said. "However, under the circumstances I think they were closed or they were trying to closed or something like that. "So that's definitely one we talked about it, and he's most remorseful about it and all that. I do understand the allure of the maple bars."

      What the heck is a maple bar? It doesn't even sound good.

      Kind of a silly situation though, nothing that really seems like an issue that threatens problems in the future.

        All I can say is D-U-M-B!!

        We spoke to the manager of the Top Pot shop ... who said he would not be commenting on the matter. On a related note, Top Pot recently inked a deal to become the official coffee and donut partner of Qwest Field -- home of the Seattle Seahawks.
        Wow, what a coincidence. No charges filed, donut shop owner has a deal with the Seahawks home field. Sounds like something that would happen in Washington.

        Every donut shop has them. They're like a rectangular donut with maple icing on top. They actually are pretty good. You should try one.

            It's a pretty obvious publicity stunt between the seahags and their new sponsor. Just a creative form of advertisement I'd bet. And maple bars are delicious BTW, my favorite donut by a mile.

              I'd try one except that I have a steep hatred of filling or anything on top of a donut other than glaze, chocolate or something similar. Not a big fan of maple taste either. Could really go for blue or gold donut right about now though for some reason.

                Me neither. I never was a fan of filling in donut. I prefer the original glaze.

                  This doesn't sound like trespassing, it sounds like breaking and entering. Which is what police can charge you with even if you dont steal anything, all you gotta have is the intent, which in Tate's case, was maple bars. But I live in CA, so maybe WA is more lenient.

                    Chris Collinsworth: Seahawks Are Wanna-be's
                    by r8rh8rmike
                    Chris Collinsworth, as he usually does, called it as he saw it during the Seattle/New England game. In the last few minutes of the contest, he called the Seahawks “wanna-be’s”, because they couldn’t come through with a win against an elite team. I give credit to Seattle for hanging around with New England, but winning, as opposed to hanging around sets good teams apart from great teams. If the “wanna-be” comment wasn’t enough, Collinsworth also joked that Dan Klecko could start at wideout for the Seahawks after the defensive lineman made a first down catch while playing on offense. The sarcastic statement could be close to the truth after another game of multiple drops by Seattle receivers.

                    The once heralded #1 defense in the NFL gave up 30+ points for the second straight week, making that 4.3 PPG number after weeks 1-3 look like an aboration. Looks like Seattle is good, but not THAT good.

                    Rams @ seahawks
                    by Curly Horns
                    I usually make the trek over to Seattle to see our Rams in action and I will be doing just that this weekend.

                    This year will be special and unique since it is the debut of the SS era. So far, I have yet to witness a Rams victory in Seattle, but it does not stop me from attending.

                    Maybe, just maybe, SS and company can help to bring home the victory!

                    I'd love for this to be the year!

                    LETS GO RAMS!!!

                    Niners waive former Seahawks WR Darrell Jackson

                    Niners waive former Seahawks WR Darrell Jackson after one season
                    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

                    SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- The San Francisco ***** waived receiver Darrell Jackson on Saturday after one unproductive season with the club.

                    Jackson joined the ***** in a trade last April after eight seasons with the Seattle Seahawks. He made at least one catch in each of his 15 starts for San Francisco, but finished the season with just 46 catches for 497 yards and three touchdowns in the NFL's least productive offense.

                    "I always had a great deal of respect for Darrell," ***** coach Mike Nolan said. "I appreciated his dedication and work ethic during his season with the *****. He always had a positive attitude every day he came to work. While we are going in a different direction, I know he can still produce and be an asset to an NFL team this year."

                    The ***** signed longtime Rams receiver Isaac Bruce as a free agent last month, adding another veteran who spent his entire career with a division rival. San Francisco also is close to a deal with Bryant Johnson, the Arizona Cardinals' No. 3 receiver for the last five seasons, to play alongside Arnaz Battle and Ashley Lelie in what's been arguably the NFL's least impressive group of receivers for the last few seasons.

                    Jackson would have made $4 million next season in salary and bonuses. Bruce agreed to a two-year, $6 million deal two weeks ago.
