A man was arrested after police said he rushed and touched Brad Pitt at the premiere of the Angelina Jolie movie “Maleficent.” The former Ukrainian journalist, Vitalii Sediuk, has had a history of getting too close to celebrities. He most recently crawled under America Ferrara’s on a red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival. He crashed the 2013 Grammy Awards and was then arrested after he went onstage and grabbed a microphone before Adele accepted an award. In 2012, Will Smith slapped Sediuk after he tried to kiss him on a red carpet. Vitalii was jailed Wednesday on suspicion of misdemeanor battery at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood and was held on a $20,000 bail, police said. Brad Pitt was unharmed.
