The Ukrainian jokester who punched Brad Pitt at the Hollywood premiere of Maleficent on Wednesday night has been ordered by a judge to stay away from Hollywood events.
Vitalii Sediuk pleaded no contest to two charges, disturbing the peace and battery, on Friday. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he has been ordered to pay a $200 fine, do 20 days of community labor, 36 months of summary probation and must remain at least 500 yards away from events such as red carpets and award shows.
On top of that Sediuk, who lost his job at a Ukrainian TV network, must also attend psychiatric counseling weekly for one year and is not allowed to own a dangerous weapon and certainly isn't allowed to harass anyone.
Sediuk was arrested Wednesday night after attacking Pitt at the premiere of Angelina Jolie's latest movie and the actor was granted a protective order from the prankster, who cannot come anywhere near him for a few more days.
Anthony Willoughby, Sediuk's counsel, said that his client wasn't attempting to attack Pitt. It was all a misunderstanding and Sediuk only wanted to hug the actor to try and make Jolie jealous, but the impromptu plan fell apart when security grabbed him.
