A motocyclist in full Easter bunny costume was pulled over Saturday on a Southern California freeway in a traffic stop that was caught on the California Highway Patrol officer's camera.

The bunny -- driving a red motorcycle with a sidecar -- was pulled over on the westbound 8 Freeway at Jackson Drive. Instead of a helmet as required by law, the man was wearing a bunny costume head -- as required by the charity event to which he was traveling.

The CHP officer radioed: "I'm stopping the Easter Bunny.''

The bunny received a warning after the officer explained the safety issues of not wearing a helmet, according to the CHP.
