LA MESA — When California Highway Patrol officers saw the Easter Bunny riding down the freeway without a helmet Saturday morning, they got right on his tail.

The man inside the white rabbit suit was westbound on Interstate 8 on a bright red motorcycle with a sidecar when he got pulled over near Jackson Drive, CHP Officer Brian Pennings said.

Officer Adam Griffiths took down the motorcyclist’s information, but decided not to give him a ticket.

“He was on his way to a charity event,” Pennings said. “He ended up with a verbal warning and an explanation of the safety factors for riding without a helmet.”
