SPARTA, N.J. — A man who wore a bunny costume and repeatedly blew an air horn inside a New Jersey police station has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct.

Kevin Hemmerich entered the plea Thursday and was fined $500. The judge also ordered a police officer charged with striking Hemmerich in Hopatcong last November to stand trial July 6.

Hopatcong police officer Nicholas Maresca Jr. has pleaded not guilty to charges of simple assault and harassment. More than 50 officers went to court to support him.

Kevin Hemmerich and his brother entered the Hopatcong Police Department lobby to surrender for an outstanding warrant. He was dressed in a bunny costume and repeatedly blew the air horn.

Maresca is seen striking Hemmerich on video taken by his brother.

I wonder why did the officer felt it was necessary to hit the bunny. Sounds like someone needs anger management classes and it ain't the bunny.

If he had obeyed the law he would be ok-what do you expect when he does this inside a police station

Those air horns are annoying. Not made for indoor use.
