Brad Pitt filed a temporary emergency restraining order against Vitalii Sediuk after the notorious Hollywood prankster punched him in the face at the "Maleficent" premiere on Wednesday evening (May 28, 2014). The restraining order requires the 25-year-old reporter to stay at least 500 feet away from the “Fight Club” star for the next 5 days but the father of six's lawyer can ask a judge to extend it.
Brad Pitt‘s sunglasses were broken in the incident but luckily he was not hurt. Meanwhile, Vitalii Sediuk, who was already on 3 years probation for crashing the Grammy stage during Adele's acceptance in 2013, was quickly handcuffed by police and hauled away to jail. When he is freed, he is barred from going near Brad Pitt. Vitalii Sediuk is now out of a job and possibly faces months in jail.
