It was a dark day yesterday for the former Energizer Bunny as he was thrown into jail after being charged with battery. Official word has it that local police suspected he had a buzz on when he stuck a drum stick into an electrical socket, shorting out the lights at City Hall. When police tried to stop him for questioning, he ran.
"I ordered him to stop!" exclaimed Officer Dick, "but he just kept going and going!" He finally ran out of juice and was apprehended near the corner of Watt Drive and Plug Avenue.
Bunny's wife, Easter was shocked at the news and hopes he finally learns his lesson in circuit court. She's hoping the judge will take "that damned drum" away for good. OFF THE WALL will follow this story until the circuit court trial is over. If he is cleared of the current charge, he may be recharged for failure to stop for a policeman.
