See, if this was an NHL player, I'd totally understand.

Nothing beats a maple bar.

Wow! Way to pander to the victim (TopPot)... Clearly he received wise advice from a lawyer. His statement is as corny and juvenile as the last lines in a Scooby Doo episode...

They're irresistible,.. If you ever want some maple bars, that's the place to go!"

another example of the Jock getting away with something that anyone else would have been arrested for.

The quote from Pete Carroll is the best:

"I'm not disappointed in a guy being in a doughnut shop when they've got maple bars like Top Pot has," Carroll said. "However, under the circumstances I think they were closed or they were trying to close 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."

@3: I know that Top Pot has a relationship with the Sounders, so they probably have some contact with the Seahawks as well...

I had never heard of Top Pot before, but I have now.

At least it was a maple bar and not a malt liquor. I don't think that'd have gone over as well. "They're irresistable... "

@6 Pretty sure that Sounders and Seahawks have same marketing team. This looks like a stunt to get free advertising for Top Pot!
10
smells like marketing for sure.

tmz reported it? uh huh.

look for a police report.

Why was the door unlocked and ajar at 3 AM? Yeah, he was dumb (stoned?) to assume that they're open that early, but still, it could've been worse than a 22 year old stoner wandering in for a maple bar, you know?

Top Pot and the Seahawks just signed a three year marketing deal. You've got to assume that has something to do with them declining to press charges. None of the parties involved actually seem upset about this in any way. It's pretty good advertising for Top Pot, in a way.

you know why this continues to piss me off? the whole ad is premised on a totally polyanna view of race and crime.

we're asked to believe that the SPD found a 25 year-old black male who broke into a business at 3am in downtown seattle and let him go with a warning.

really? ok, i'm breaking into cupcake royale tomorrow night.

@5, that totally reads like an Onion article. Crazy.
14
The good TopPot folks (some of the best espresso in town) have got to rename their maplebars, at least for a short while, to: "GoldenTaters"
15
sometimes a maple bar is just a maple bar.
16
A very yummy maple bar ...
17
BOYS WILL BE BOYS, AMIRITE?!

If it was a homeless dude or lady, they would have been arrested.

Grats, cops.

Sounds like someone had a case of the munchies. * Wink wink, nudge nudge.*

It's my understanding the Paul Allen is involved with Sounders as well, is that correct?

Richter, Times reports the Top Pot store was on the ground floor of the Bellevue building where Tate lives. Their one store there is at the base of the super-fancy Washington Square building. This is far, far from downtown Seattle.

The baker had left the common area door open when he went to piss or something and Tate more or less wandered in through his fancy building's secured ground floor.

Make more sense?

isn't this still stealing though?
22
They bake here. Staffed overnight.

Bellevue is "Suburban Seattle" in this article - weird! I totally know where that building is, a few blocks from BelleSquare, and like, a block behind my tattoo artist's shop! (Yes, I get inked in Bellevue....I just can't break up with this guy, he's too good.)
24
@23: Uh, are you suggesting Bellevue isn't a suburb of Seattle?
25
fucking seattle.... I HATE THAT NYC DOESNT HAVE MAPLE BARS.

Also I got kicked out of Top Pot for throwing a doughnut at the doughnut lady because she was being a cow and didnt want to check in the back for maple bars (I SWEAR TO GOD I COULD SEE THEM ON A TRAY BACK THERE), She gave me all this attitude so I threw it (I missed, I suck). I FLEW TO SEATTLE FOR FUCKING DOUGHNUTS LADY!

Man maybe Top Pot just creates a need for illegal activity.

While a Rookie (because it was the first time that I've done this) I stole a Top Pot Maple Bar from my wife and she clocked me (knocked the taste right out of my mouth); is that against the law? I blamed it on being a Seahawks fan; I don't know what her excuse was... "GO HAWKS!"
