When You’ve Lost The Easter Bunny…

An Illinois man who works part time as an Easter Bunny was arrested Thursday after he allegedly assaulted a police officer.

A man who works as the Easter Bunny at St. Clair Square Mall is accused of assaulting a Fairview Heights police officer Thursday night.

Police said the man assaulted the female officer and then ran through the mall around 7:00 p.m. Thursday. When officers caught up with him, they believed he was a threat and tased him to make an arrest.

The man, whose name was not released, was dressed in a bunny costume earlier that day. However, he was not wearing it during the altercation.

Eh, it would have been funnier if the man was still in the bunny suit… and throwing eggs at the officer.
