A man who accosted Brad Pitt on a red carpet has been ordered to stay away from the actor and Hollywood red carpet events.
Vitalii Sediuk entered a plea of no contest to battery during a court appearance yesterday, three days after he leaped from a fan area and made contact with Pitt at the Maleficent premiere in Los Angeles.
The 25-year-old was also ordered to stay away from Brad's partner Angelina Jolie and stay 500 yards away from the Hollywood block where movie premieres and the Academy Awards are hosted.
He was charged earlier with four misdemeanours, including assault and two counts governing conduct at sporting and entertainment events.
Sediuk is a former journalist for the Ukrainian television station 1+1, which fired him about three weeks ago.
