Police: ‘Easter bunny’ involved in Florida brawl wanted in New Jersey for burglary

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH BRUNSWICK -

A viral video out of Florida showing a man in a bunny costume stepping in to help a woman in a fight is also wanted for burglary in South Brunswick.

Police know the man in the bunny costume as Antoine McDonald.

McDonald is shown in the video actually helping the woman who got into a fight over the weekend with a man -- and then found himself in the middle of the brawl.

After the melee, he spoke to local stations in the state.

"The officer came up to me and said, ‘If you do that again, I'm going to arrest you and the damned bunny suit,’” says McDonald. “I just rushed over there. I didn't say hey, look, look at this, no, I just rushed over there." 

South Brunswick police sent out a tweet, saying, “We are aware of the video showing Antoine McDonald. He had a warrant issued for him in October of 2018 for car burglaries in South Brunswick and failed to appear in court. His warrant remains active.”

Police in South Brunswick are working with police in Florida to try and track down McDonald to see if extradition is a possibility.

McDonald was also arrested in Delaware back in 2017 after he was part of a group accused in armed robberies.
