Easter Bunny Mall Fight

(Buzz60) -- Hippity, hoppity, one Easter Bunny is on his way to jail.

An Easter Bunny at the Newport Mall in Jersey City had to be taken to the ground by mall cops and placed into custody, after getting in a fistfight.

One week before Easter, the man got into a scuffle at the mall and walked away.

Then he made the not-so-eggscellent decision to return, and that's when things turned into a full-on brawl.

It's still unclear why this Easter bunny lost his cool.

However, not only did the gloves come off -- literally -- but he also broke the cardinal rule of mall mascots: never take off your mask where kids can see you.

Presumably, this bunny had bigger fish to fry, leaving parents to explain that the Easter Bunny is just a deranged man inside a furry suit.

Well, at least now we know what the Easter Bunny's delivering this year: nightmares (and hopefully some jelly beans too)!
