From the people who brought you "Bad Santa"

Maybe this could be a sequel to Bad Santa. Put Billy Bob Thornton in an Easter Bunny suit, and let the hijinks, hilarity, and debauchery begin!

From The Daily Nonpareil of Council Bluffs, IA:

According to Council Bluffs Police reports, officers went to the mall around 3:15 p.m. about a man dressed as the Easter Bunny causing a disturbance. The man was working as the Easter Bunny at the mall's picture-taking area. The man, identified as Michael J. Desantiago Sr., 36, of Council Bluffs, told police someone threw water at him and other items. Desantiago said he became frustrated, left the area and changed his clothes and came back.

At this point, the reports said, Desantiago went up to a fellow employee and told her he was leaving. The girl started to yell at him and then called security, Desantiago told police.

The girl, however, told police that Desantiago "got up in her face and started to yell at her," the reports said. She became frightened and started to shake.

Desantiago, according to the reports, went up to another person and threatened him if he didn't get out of the way.

Desantiago was arrested and charged with two counts of harassment and transported to county corrections.

Man, that movie writes itself! Just make sure Billy Bob's midget sidekick has a role. I love that guy.
