Brad Pitt Attacker

Destroyed Pitt's Sunglasses

Hit With Restraining Order

5/29/2014 7:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



The guy who attacked Brad Pitt on the red carpet last night violated a cardinal rule of fighting -- never hit a guy with glasses ... especially when he's surrounded by a team of security goons.

TMZ broke the story ... Ukrainian troublemaker Vitalii Sediuk lunged at Pitt at the "Maleficent" premiere ... hitting him in the face and breaking the designer sunglasses he was wearing. Sediuk was immediately subdued ... and hauled off to jail.

0528-brad-pitt-GettyLaw enforcement sources tell us ... Brad wasn't hurt in the attack -- just stunned -- but a temporary emergency restraining order is now in place ... ordering Sediuk to stay at least 500 feet way from Pitt for the next 5 days.

We're told the case has been sent to the L.A. City Attorney for possible prosecution.

Sediuk is already on 3 years probation for crashing the Grammys in 2013 ... when he appeared on stage and tried to accept Adele's award.

Hwo is it that no one is keeps track of where Vitalli Sediuk is 24/7? And how is he not in jail by now. less than two weeks ago this freak ambushed a distracted America Ferrah, peeping under her dress with a camera, when she was posing for a picture with Cate Blanchett. In January he ran onto the red carpet, wrapped his arms around Bradley Cooper's legs and started mooter boating his crotch in front of his cast mates, fans, the paps, and of course Bradley's security guards . In 2013, he snuck into the Grammys during the time when everyone was paranoid because of that crazy cop shooter on the lose in CA, stole Adam Levine's seat, then made his way onto the stage during Adele's award acceptance only to be kicked off by J-Lo. A couple of weeks after that he crashed the Oscars in a Bjork-style swan dress, holing replica Oscars. At the end of 2012 he randomly went up to Will Smith who was walking on the carpet and tried to plant a wet one on Will's lips, only to be brushed off then smacked in the head by an obviously creeped out (pissed) Smith. He has harassed Madona, and even once tricked former President-elect Bill Clinton.

The 9th rule of fight club: you don't punch a guy surrounded by security... unless he's wearing douchey sunglasses.

Maybe security should pass that guys picture out at all these events so he can't come near celebrities. Just a thought.

Considering this moron is such a fame whore, and this is TMZ, you can assume for a fact he is reading everything posted here. This a hole needs to be deported from this country and never allowed back in. What he's doing isn't funny. It's not impressive. And the only thing he's doing is making people want to see him incarcerated.

To the fame whore himself. You're a douche. Leave celebrities alone. Go the hell back to whatever country you came from and stay away from the USA. You're not welcome here. Shame on the police for continuing to give this bastard a light slap on the wrist every time he's caught doing this crap over and over again. He keepos doing it over and over again BECAUSE you are giving him nothing but a slap on the wrist. If you expect to detour crimes then damn it... start punishing the criminals. Honestly sometimes it's an embarrassment to be from this country.

5 day restraining order? What a joke! Since he's already on probation, why is he not just jailed? Better, deport back to his country!

When you look at the footage, I don't see any clear shot that he hits Brad in the face. Brad's glasses come down when he is kind of jerking trying to get the guy on the ground.

If this guy is not a U.S. citizen, can't his tourist visa be yanked? Or his name and passport flagged so he can be denied entry to the U.S.? I agree with Nevermore's opinion - he's escalating

Looks like Brad might have sucked in a couple of kicks once they man handled him to the ground.
