Antoine McDonald aka Orlando Easter Bunny brawler: More than meets his fluffy bunny ears.
Told McDonald via News6 after the episode which saw him beat down a would be aggressive man, ‘I am the type of person to avoid fights by any means necessary, but in that situation, I would fight any day.’
McDonald told the outlet he didn’t know the woman or man- while insisting he would not tolerate disrespect toward women. But it now appears, McDonald does have his own fuzzy skeletons to contend with.
It wasn’t long after the video went viral that McDonald was exposed of having a sordid past, including being accused of two armed robberies on New Year’s Day in 2017 in his home state of NJ. In 2018 – McDonald and an accomplice were caught on camera burglarizing a car in South Brunswick. Police in New Jersey obtained a warrant for McDonald’s arrest.
McDonald left the state and was later arrested in Pasco County, according to the Times following that episode.
“Turns out, the man in the suit — 20-year-old Antoine McDonald — is wanted in New Jersey in connection with a vehicle burglary last fall, and. He was also recently a “person of interest” in a carjacking and two armed robberies in Pasco County” https://t.co/AzSqrccjRz
