Brad Pitt gets restraining order against 'Maleficent' red carpet attacker

By Elizabeth Sudlow,

Brad Pitt is still angry, and possibly in pain, from an attacker's punch from Wednesday nights premiere of Maleficent.

Pitt, who was attending the event with his partner Angelina Jolie, was posing for photos with fans when the man, Vitalii Sediuk, punched him in the face before being dragged off by security.

Now, Pitt has been granted a temporary restraining order against Sediuk that will last only five days, notes Reuters.

After being arrested on Wednesday, Sediuk’s bail was set at $20,000, reports Time.

This is not Sediuk’s first offense with the A-listers as The Huffington Post notes. He recently tried to sneak is way underneath America Ferrera’s dress at the How To Train Your Dragon 2 premiere in Cannes. In the past, he has also made inappropriate grabs at Leonardo DiCaprio and Bradley Cooper and attempted to kiss Will Smith at the Men in Black 3 premiere.

If Pitt wants to extend the restraining order he will have to go to court.
