Vitalii Sediuk, the Ukranian TV prankster who most recently attacked Brad Pitt at the May 28 premiere of Disney’s “Maleficent,” has been banned from all red carpet events.

The Ukranian TV presenter pled no contest to battery and unlawful activity and will complete 20 days of community service, but the judge also took measures to prevent any future incidents.

According to TMZ reports, the L.A. County court judge sentenced Sediuk to 36 months probation and $220 in fines and ordered him to stay 500 yards away from red carpets, movie premieres and award shows.

Sediuk, who will soon be released from custody, was already on probation after getting on stage with Adele and Jennifer Lopez at the 2013 Grammys. As a result, he has now been ordered to stay 100 yards away from Staples Center and the L.A. Live complex.

The judge also ordered Sediuk to stay away from Pitt and his fiancé Angelina Jolie as well as the Hollywood and Highland center, where he attacked Pitt.

The prankster also demonstrated his antics at Cannes, where he stuck his head under America Ferrera’s dress at the premiere of DreamWorks Animations’ “How to Train Your Dragon 2.” His previous indiscretions also include grabbing Leonardo DiCaprio, trying to kiss Will Smith and groping Bradley Cooper.

      Good idea. Thanks. When this psycho begins shooting up people, it will be too late. He should have been deported already.
