Brad Pitt Attacked at ‘Maleficent’ Premiere [PHOTOS]

Pacific Coast News

Things got a little scary at the premiere of ‘Maleficent’ in Hollywood, California last night (May 28) — and it had nothing to do with the movie. While walking the red carpet with Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt became the victim of an attack, reportedly getting punched in the face by notorious Hollywood menace Vitalii Sediuk (the same man who groped Bradley Cooper, kissed Will Smith, grabbed Leonardo DiCaprio‘s crotch, crashed Adele’s Grammy win and crawled under America Ferrera’s skirt.) Seriously, how does this guy still manage to get into these events?

Pitt and Jolie were walking on the red carpet at the El Capitan Theater when Sediuk, a 25-year-old Ukranian journalist, jumped over the barricade and apparently socked the A-list actor in the face, Us Weekly reports. Security held him until police arrived at the scene, and he was later taken to the police station and arrested and booked on suspicion of misdemeanor battery, Variety reports. He is being held on a $20,000 bail.

According to Variety, Pitt was fortunately unharmed and got back to signing autographs for fans after taking a slight break with Jolie after the incident.

See the photos below.

Though it is unclear at which point of the night this photo was taken, it looks like it was shot around the time that Pitt was attacked, as Angelina Jolie looks seriously concerned.
