The man accused of “attacking” Brad Pitt is giving his own take on what happened.

25-year-old Vitalii Sediuk said he was going in for a hug, but he fell when security grabbed him.

Sediuk has a history of red carpet pranks. He’s also accused of “attacking” other A-list celebrities like Bradley Cooper. And last month, he crawled under America Ferrera’s dress at the Cannes Film Festival.

Pitt got a restraining order after the incident. Sediuk spent 2 days in jail.  He pleaded no contest to battery and unlawful activity.

Sediuk was sentenced to three years probation, one year of counseling, and he’s been ordered to keep away from Pitt.
