MINOT, N.D. -- A registered sex offender who was playing an Easter Bunny at a Minot mall has been arrested.

Daniel Sanderson, 24, of Minot was nabbed by police after a tip came in that he was being employed by a temporary employment service to serve as the bunny at Dakota Square Mall.

Police said neither the employment agency nor the mall knew he was a sex offender.

Sanderson was taken into custody Wednesday by police on a probation violation warrant and faces an additional felony charge for failing to update his employment status with the Minot Police Department.  Another warrant is pending for Sanderson failing to update his place of residence with the police department.
