Uh-oh! Some bunny forgot to wear his motorcycle helmet.

Yesterday a California Highway Patrol officer pulled over an Easter bunny, who was on his way to a charity event near San Diego, according to CBS Los Angeles. An officer snapped a photo of the traffic stop giving us this hilarious visual.

"This was the first time I'm aware that we got the Easter Bunny on a motorcycle," said Brian Pennings, a public information officer. He said that they've definitely nabbed Santa in the past.

The man was pulled over for not wearing a helmet and also because wearing a bunny costume could make it kind of hard to see the road. He was given a verbal warning this time.
