Mallory Hoff has the story of a brawl involving the Easter Bunny at a mall in Jersey City.

A brawl caught on camera at a mall in New Jersey involved a costumed character you probably wouldn't expect: the mall Easter Bunny.

It all happened as customers were waiting to get their picture taken with the Easter icon.

Video surfaced on social media Sunday of the bunny getting into a brawl at the Newport Mall in Jersey City.

The man who was dressed as the bunny is at the center of the melee and can be seen throwing punches outside the seasonal display.

Mall security jumped in to get the bunny brawl under control.

According to Jersey City police, the 22-year-old man who was playing the role of the Easter Bunny said the father of a one-year-old child verbally and then physically attacked him after the girl slipped from the chair following her photo.

A fight ensued between both the father and the Easter Bunny, with both being taken to the JCMC-Barnabas Health for minor injuries.

Eyewitness News reached out to Newport Mall for comment, but have not yet heard back.

No charges have been filed at this time, police say, as detectives are continuing to investigate and speak with witnesses as it remains unclear who initiated the incident.
