Brad Pitt attacked on El Capitan red carpet

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and at least some of their kids were at the premiere of the new Disney film "Maleficient" tonight at Hollywood's El Capitan theatre. Media reports and the LAPD say that Pitt was on the red carpet when a man jumped the barricade and made contact with the actor, who was not injured. The man was taken away and booked for misdemeanor battery by the LAPD. He is apparently the same 25-year-old celebrity stalker from Ukraine who snuck under actress America Ferrera's dress this month at Cannes, and has previously crashed the Grammys and SAG awards.
