Brad Pitt Allegedly Punched by Serial Star Crasher Vitalii Sediuk (VIDEO)
This guy, again? Allegedly.
The L.A. Police Department says Ukrainian journalist Vitalii Sediuk was the man who attacked Brad Pitt last night on the red carpet in Hollywood. The 25-year-old appears to be a serial star crasher who has allegedly had run-ins with celebs in the past.
In Pitt's case the attack appeared to be minor:
LAPD Officer Nuria Venegas told us that it didn't appear that paramedics were called following the 7:30 p.m. incident at the El Capitan Theater.

Pitt was there for the premiere of Maleficent, which stars longtime partner Angelina Jolie.
"Mr. Pitt was walking on the red carpet when the suspect jumped over a barricade, made contact with Mr. Pitt and was taken into custody," Venegas said.
Pitt went right on signing autographs, NBC Los Angeles said.
At the Cannes Film Festival earlier this month Sediuk allegedly dove under the dress of America Ferrera on the red carpet.
In January Sediuk allegedly hugged Bradley Cooper's legs and planted his face in his crotch outside the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
He also allegedly crashed the Academy Awards and tried to interrupt the Grammy Awards' speech of Adele before Jennifer Lopez prevented him from doing so.
According to L.A. County Sheriff's Department inmate info, Sediuk was being held in lieu of $20,000 bail.
