In what is probably downtown Orlando's weirdest fight yet, someone dressed as the Easter Bunny ran into an ongoing brawl and beat up a man on Orange Avenue Sunday.

An Orlando promoter who goes by Workkk caught the whole thing on video and told Orlando Weekly the fight started when a man bumped into a woman with dreads.



The two were already punching each other when the fluffy vigilante suddenly jumped in and started swinging. Meanwhile, onlookers yelled, "Beat his ass! Beat his ass!"


A second video with a different angle shows the bunny going ham from across the street.

"As you can see the Easter rabbit been taking boxing classes," the promoter says. "Shit was hilarious."

The video shows the fight was quickly broken up by a bystander and a bike cop from Orlando Police. Orlando Weekly reached out to OPD for more information but did not receive an immediate comment.

The video is already on WorldStar, so get ready for a bumpy ride, Orlando.

UPDATE: OPD Sgt. David Baker says no one was charged in last night's  Easter Bunny tussle.

"The officer on-scene broke up the incident and dispersed the parties involved," Baker says in a statement. "No arrests or reports were completed."
