Brad Pitt was attacked by a man during Wednesday night’s premiere of Maleficient starring fiancée Angelina Jolie.
The man – since identified as notorious Ukrainian reporter Vitalii Sediuk – was said to have jumped the barricade, rushed towards him and punched – or touched – him in the face.
Pitt was not hurt, however, but TMZ says his sunglasses was broken by Sediuk, who was immediately arrested and hauled off to jail.
The actor has also obtained a restraining order which requires his attacker to stay 500 feet away from him for the next five days.
The LA City Attorney’s office says it will ask the judge to issue an injunction banning Sediuk – whose recent prank was to crawl under actress America Ferrera’s gown at Cannes – from attending all Hollywood events.
