RENTON, Wash. — Seahawks rookie wide receiver Golden Tate apologized Tuesday and said he was “very embarrassed” after police in suburban Seattle gave him a warning for trespassing into a gourmet doughnut shop at 3 a.m. last weekend.
The former Notre Dame star says it was a foolish mistake but that he is glad to have learned a valuable lesson without getting arrested.
Tate says a friend took a couple of maple bars from the shop, which is at the bottom of the building in which Tate lives.
He says “they are irresistible.”
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says he has talked to Tate, and agrees that maple bars can be irresistible.
The celebrity gossip outlet TMZ first reported the incident Tuesday.
