ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- A Florida man who became a video sensation after fighting a man on the street while dressed as the Easter Bunny has been arrested and authorities say he tried to use the costume to elude capture.

Antoine McDonald became a viral phenomenon after a video captured him fighting a man in Orlando last year.

Earlier this month, Florida Highway Patrol officials say McDonald was driving a motorcycle when he ran a stop sign and crashed into a carport before fleeing the scene.

Authorities found him laying in the backseat of a car in full costume.

He denied the accident, telling the officer to Google the Orlando Easter Bunny.
