LOS ANGELES, CA (AP) - A man was led away in handcuffs after allegedly attacking Brad Pitt on the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of the movie "Maleficent."

Pitt was apparently unhurt and soon resumed signing autographs.

Witnesses saw the man from the fan area jump over a barrier on to the red carpet Wednesday at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood and rush at Pitt, touching him briefly before security guards wrestled him back across the barrier.

A police spokeswoman says the man, whose name she did not know, was arrested on suspicion of battery.

Pitt kept greeting fans and walked into the theater.

Pitt's longtime partner Angelina Jolie stars in "Maleficent," Disney's new live action spin on "Sleeping Beauty."

Email messages left for representatives for Pitt and Disney were not immediately returned.
