A mall Easter bunny in Virginia was hiding something besides Easter eggs and candy this holiday. While wearing his bunny suit at the Piedmont Mall in Danville, 24-year-old Joshua Lee Boiling was found in illegal possession of prescription narcotics. Mall employees contacted the police last Friday after noticing the bunny's unusual behavior during his breaks, suggesting possible criminal drug activity. When confronted by police, Boiling was found in possession of prescription pills. However, the police report indicated that his suspicious behavior did not take place while interacting with the children. And thankfully, the kids at the mall were spared the ordeal of seeing an Easter bunny walk out in handcuffs—Bolling was escorted to a private changing area during his arrest.
