A man attempting to steal an iPad owned by celebrity couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie was caught just in time at the scene of the crime over the weekend. The thief had apparently already gotten inside the family SUV to steal a shared iPad but fortunately, passersby were able to notify the authorities before the man could escape with the gadget.
During the arrest, eldest son Maddox was on site, dressed in a camouflage and balaclava as he went paint-balling that day at the Hollywood Sports Paintball Park in Bellflower, California. Rarely seen without his parents around, he was at that time accompanied to the park by a bodyguard.
The attempted theft is the latest property-related crime experienced by the Jolie-Pitt family. Last May, their French Chateau Miraval estate was broken into by two pranksters who pretended to be the superstar couple. Back in 2006, their baby shower pictures for their then forthcoming daughter Shiloh, taken in Namibia, were stolen.
Maddox, along with siblings Vivienne, Knox, Shiloh, Zahara and Pax, went with their father Brad as he promoted his zombie film "World War Z" last month. Wife Angelina was most supportive of all, even appearing beside him during the movie's big premiere in London. It was her first public appearance since undergoing her widely-publicized double mastectomy to avoid a potential breast cancer ailment that runs on her side of the family.
