Former Notre Dame Star Golden Tate in Trouble for Donut Heist

[picappgallerysingle id="8598625"]Okay, we can all agree that there’s nothing like the smell of a hot, fresh donut to get your senses going. You just want to grab one and run. Well, at least if you are former Notre Dame star, and current Seattle Seahawks rookie Golden “Just Call Me Homer” Tate. Apparently his sticky fingers were really sticky this time when the snuck into a donut shop into his building and, along with a reportedly drunk friend, swiped some maple pastries. Of course, the rest of us would be in jail for doing that, but Tate was just left off with a warning and a belly full of goodness.

Here’s more on the story from our friends at TMZ:

NFL rookie star Golden Tate was “drunk” and “being retarded” when he broke into a donut shop in Washington and stole maple bars at 3 AM … this according to the woman who called 911.

TMZ obtained the 911 call made on Saturday morning — in which the Top Pot employee tells the dispatcher Golden and a friend snuck in through an unlocked door, stole keys and a bunch of donuts … and then ran off.
The woman also claims the Seattle Seahawks star then came back to the scene of the crime, returned the keys, and tried to blame his friend for the heist … but the employee says she watched Tate “running from behind the counter.” Ultimately, cops arrived to the scene and issued Tate a “trespass warning.”
