The Seattle Seahawks star who was busted inside a donut shop this weekend claims he was done in by the aroma of the "irresistible" maple bars.
Golden Tate just addressed the media after practice in Seattle, where he explained to reporters why cops gave him a "trespass warning" for breaking into a Top Pot at 3 AM Saturday morning.
"A buddy made the mistake of going in, grabbing a couple ... We ate them. Nothing much to the story other than that."
Afterward, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told the Seattle Times, "[Golden] is most remorseful about it and all that ... I do understand the allure of the maple bars."
