Brad Pitt was assaulted Wednesday on the red carpet for the Hollywood premiere of Maleficent.
An L.A.P.D. spokesperson tells Yahoo News that Brad and Angelina Jolie were "signing autographs when a man jumped over the barrier and struck" the actor in the face.

Security wrestled the man to the ground and detained him until cops arrived. He was charged with battery.
The man was later identified as Ukrainian prankster Vitalii Sediuk, who most made headlines just last week for sticking his head under America Ferrera's gown at the Cannes Film Festival. His other celeb victims include Bradley Cooper, Leonardo DiCaprio and Will Smith.
