Not funny, bunny: LA gets no laughs from cop's costume

Not funny, bunny: LA gets no laughs from cop's costume

He was just trying to lighten things up while issuing tickets at pedestrian crossings, but police officer Tom Broadway had to ditch his Easter Bunny disguise when city officials charged his stunt was "breathtakingly dangerous."
Broadway came up with his long-eared full-body disguise during a pedestrian enforcement campaign in Glendale, a Los Angeles suburb.
While it lasted, he issued 27 tickets to motorists who failed to stop when he was walking across a designated pedestrian crossing.
City officials, however, were not amused, and Broadway now is back on his beat in a more ordinary disguise: shorts and T-shirt.
Councilman John Drayman called the Easter Bunny stunt "breathtakingly dangerous."
"I am happy to hear that they modified the sting, and agreed that the idea of a giant rabbit - a total anomaly out in the roadway - is not exactly training our drivers to learn really anything."
