Man: Easter Bunny says I fondled her

BIG RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - A Big Rapids, Michigan man says he is being accused of fondling a woman dressed in an Easter Bunny costume at a drug store.

"It's pretty stupid," Michael Dodge says.

On Saturday Dodge and his wife took their grandchildren to Walgreen's to meet and have photos taken with the Easter Bunny.

The children became upset by the large rabbit costume, so Dodge said he tried to make them more comfortable by taking a few photos with the bunny to show them there was nothing to fear. In one of those photos, he hugged the woman wearing the Easter Bunny costume.

The next morning, he got a call from the Big Rapids Department of Public Safety, asking him to come to the station for an interview. The woman in the Easter Bunny costume, Dodge says police told him, alleged he had fondled her.
