A woman in Mansfield, Ohio, was arrested this week after drunkenly “coming on” to an Easter Bunny in a public space, police say.
Fifty-four-year-old Ladonna Hughett was reportedly visiting the carousel park in Mansfield when she decided to take a photo with the person in an Easter Bunny costume on the premises. Police say she “lewdly” grabbed the Easter Bunny and “propositioned” him while they were posing for the photo.
“We received a report from a citizen, an unusual report from a citizen, that called us to the Richland Carrousel Park of an intoxicated female doing some lewd acts on the Easter Bunny,” Assistant Chief Keith Porch told local Ohio station WLW.
Police say she was within earshot of young children and families when she made the suggestive comments, so they made an arrest.

Video obtained by The Smoking Gun shows Hughett hopping on the Easter Bunnys lap and grabbing his crotch. After she says something inaudible, a woman watching reportedly yells, “Oh my! This is a kids event.”
Police promptly arrived on scene and booked her but later released her without filing any charges. Just last year, Hughett was charged for aggravated assault, although its not clear who or what she may have attacked.
