Earlier this month, McDonald was riding his motorcycle, ran a stop sign, and crashed into someone else's garage before zooming away, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Excerpt from today's story in the Associated Press:
The carport collapsed on top of the vehicle. Deputies went to McDonald's address and spotted a gray car driving away and found McDonald laying in the backseat of the car. When a deputy went to arrest him, he denied it.
"I wasn't in any crash. I'm the Orlando Easter bunny, Google it," he said, according to an arrest report.
Orlando cops asked Mr. McDonald to change out of his costume before they arrested him, reports The Orlando Sentinel.
