Tate "very embarrassed" over doughnut shop trespassing incident.

Seahawks rookie WR Golden Tate and a friend were caught trespassing in a Bellevue Top Pot Doughnut shop at 3 a.m. Saturday.

Tate was not arrested or given a ticket, just a warning, for his late night maple bar caper.

"Just a warning, I didn’t get arrested," he said. "They just kind of said, ‘Don’t do it again,’ which I won’t."

Tate seemed genuinely sorry for the incident, saying "I’m very apologetic for it. This is the wrong type of media I want to bring to this organization, and I apologize to the team, the coaches, and even Top Pot. As of now I think that’s the end of it. . . I’m very embarrassed to even have my name a part of this. Before now I’ve never had any type of trouble in school or anything."

Tate lives in the building, and apparently he and his friend couldn't resist grabbing a doughnut before calling it a night.

"They’re irresistible," he said. "It was a foolish mistake that won’t happen again, but if you ever want some maple bars, that’s the place to go."

And if that sounds a bit like a plug for the company, perhaps that is because Top Pot recently signed a deal with the Seahawks and Sounders FC to be the doughnut and coffee supplier to Qwest Field. Perhaps they'll feature Tate in an ad: "Top pot donuts. Maple bars worth trespassing for."
