Badger fan kicked out of game, sends police 240 doughnuts.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — University of Wisconsin-Madison Police say a California man sent them 20 dozen coconut doughnuts as payback after officers threw him out of a Badger football game Saturday.A man who was kicked out of Camp Randall Stadium during Saturday’s Wisconsin football game let UW-Madison police know he wasn’t happy about what happened — but that there were no hard feelings — by sending them 240 coconut doughnut on Monday. Two-hundred-forty doughnuts — every one of them covered in coconut — raised suspicions among officers, Lovicott later told the Journal Sentinel. “It was bizarre. According to emails between the man and UW police spokesman Marc Lovicott, the anonymous doughnut donor lives in Los Angeles and went to Saturday’s game against Northwestern with a large group of friends in the Camp Randall student section.

When he attempted to join his friends, he was surrounded by officers who explained he would be ejected and banned for the day. “You’re exactly right. Was someone trying to get back at us with the joke about cops and donuts?” Police quizzed the delivery driver from The People’s Bakery, who told them the doughnuts came directly from the bakery and that the bakery even had to order extra coconut to fill the order. The man was separated from his friends and wound up with a ticket in section K, on the other side of the student section from his friends in section P. The driver gave them the name of the man who ordered them, and police recognized the “fairly unique” name as someone who had been ejected from Camp Randall last Saturday during the Wisconsin Badgers’ 13-7 loss to the Northwestern Wildcats. The man told Lovicott sending coconut doughnuts shows both his gratitude for the police and his disdain for how he was treated, saying doughnuts are awesome but coconut doughnuts aren’t.

At the end of the game — after a controversial call negating a Badgers touchdown and the ultimate loss — referees had to duck their heads and race to a tunnel as they were pelted with snowballs. He also informed the fan that the doughnuts would be shared with a homeless shelter because “there’s no way we’ll be able to eat 240 donuts” with a staff of 130.
