Easter Bunny on Motorcycle Pulled Over for Not Wearing Helmet [PHOTO]

In what was surely a bizarre scene for the patrolman who made the bust, a man wearing a full Easter Bunny costume, including a view-obstructing rabbit head, was stopped by the California Highway Patrol for driving without a helmet on Saturday. San Diego CHP officer Adam Griffiths spotted the Easter Bunny, who – to complete the odd scene— was driving an old-fashioned motorcyle with a side car.

“I’m stopping the Easter Bunny,” Griffiths radioed in.

His partner snapped the above photo as the Easter Bunny received a stern warning.

“Griffiths told him it was a serious situation and that it wasn’t a joke,” [CHP East County PIO Brian] Pennings said. “He explained to him the safety ramifications of not having a helmet.”

The CHP officer told the giant bunny “his outfit was a visual impairment, he was not able to be aware of his surroundings, and therefore he threatened his own safety, and that of others.”

Pennings said safe motorcyclists constantly need to turn their heads to observe traffic to their side or behind them.

The Easter Bunny, who was on his way to a charity event, wasn’t issued in a ticket.

He left the scene still in costume, but with his head in the sidecar.
