Daniel Sanderson mugshot.

MINOT, N.D. — A sex offender hired to play the Easter bunny at a North Dakota mall was arrested Wednesday.

According to the Argus Leader, police received a tip that Daniel Sanderson, 24, had been hired to play the Easter bunny at the Dakota Square Mall.

He was arrested on an outstanding warrant for a probation violation. Sanderson also was charged with failure to register as a sex offender.

A spokesperson for the mall said the photography company that takes the Easter photos was unaware that Sanders was a sex offender. The photography company is in charge of making hires.

Sanderson was ordered to register as a sex offender after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor of indecent exposure last year.
