Brad Pitt is not taking any chances.

E! News has learned that the actor has been granted an emergency protective order against Vitalii Sediuk, the man who rushed him during the Hollywood premiere of Maleficent.

The protective orders are issued by police and good for five days, so the actor will be forced to take go to court should he want a longer temporary restraining order.

In most cases, an emergency protective order is only issues when circumstances present the possibility of imminent and immediate danger to the victim.

LAPD confirms to us that they asked Mr. Angelina Jolie if he would like one issued for him shortly after the scary ordeal, which he understandably accepted.

A spokesperson from the film studio tells E! News, "This was an unfortunately and inappropriate incident that is being investigated by the LAPD."

So what exactly went down between Pitt and the notorious red carpet prankster?

An eyewitness tells us that Sediuk rushed the A-lister after deciding to jump the rope and hop onto the carpet. Sediuk apparently got into contact with Brad but police quickly took control of the situation and detained the man.

Sediuk is currently in custody after being booked for battery and being held on $20,000 bail.

In the end, it didn't seem like Brad was fazed by the surprise encounter in the slightest. 

He continued to walk the carpet and smiled and waved at fans just moments later.
