While his wife Angelina Jolie ,star of Maleficent was being interviewed on one side of El Capitan Theater on Hollywood Boulevard Wednesday. Brad Pitt was on the other side signing autographs. Sediuk allegedly jumped the rope and hit actor in his face, according to Los Angeles Police Sgt. Leonard Calderon. Pitt, who looked as he got a couple of punches in, continued unfazed on the carpet to giving interviews.
Sediuk was held in the Los Angeles County Men’s Central Jail after failing to post $20,000 bail, and was indicted on May 30, 2014 on charges of assault and battery. Sediuk was also charged with unlawful activity at a sporting or theatrical event or exhibition, and unlawful delay of a unlawful activity at a sporting or theatrical event or exhibition, relating to his 2013 Oscars stunt, prosecution for which had been deferred at the time of the incident on condition of his good behavior for three years.
Sediuk, 25, previously told “The Hollywood Reporter” that he relied on 1+1 — a celebrity-oriented network that airs the Ukrainian version of The Voice to cover the legal costs incurred during his last brush with the law, following his arrest for storming the stage at the 2013 Grammys. That incident resulted in three years of probation and a lifetime ban from the L.A Live complex.
This time around, Sediuk — who is still being held by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department on suspicion of battery, pending $20,000 bond — will be left entirely to his own devices.
His first appearance before a Los Angeles judge is scheduled for Today, but he has already been slapped with an emergency protective order barring him from approaching Pitt. The restraining order expires on Monday, but is likely to be extended.
