A Florida man who became a video sensation last year after fighting a man in Orlando while dressed as the Easter Bunny has been arrested, according to authorities.
Earlier this month, Antoine McDonald was driving a motorcycle when he ran a stop sign and then crashed into a carport before fleeing the scene, the Florida Highway Patrol says. The carport later collapsed onto the vehicle.
When deputies went to McDonald’s home, they saw a gray car driving away with McDonald laying in the backseat.
When a deputy went to arrest the suspect, he denied being a part of the incident.
“I wasn’t in any crash. I’m the Orlando Easter bunny, Google it,” he said, while wearing the same Easter Bunny suit, according to an arrest report.
A report in the Orlando Sentinel states that authorities had McDonald remove the costume before arresting him.
He is charged with leaving the scene of a crash involving property damage, driving with a suspended license and operating a motorcycle without a license.
