After criticism from Councilman John Drayman, the Glendale Police Department yesterday opted to ditch the bunny costume worn by an officer used in a pedestrian sting the day before. Officers nabbed 36 people Thursday for not yielding to a plainclothes officer trying to cross the street in a crosswalk. “I am happy to hear that they modified the sting and agreed that the idea of a giant rabbit — a total anomaly out in the roadway — is not exactly training our drivers to learn really anything,” Drayman told the Glendale-News Press. Thursday's sting took place at Glendale Ave. and Raleigh St. and at Pacific Ave. and Hawthorne St. Both locations were based on collision history and resident complaints.
