A man arrested after attempting to upstage Adele at the Grammy Awards faces a possible trespassing charge for his latest celebrity interaction gone wrong.

Vitalii Sediuk told The Hollywood Reporter, which first reported his arrest, that he was allowed into the show despite not having a ticket.

Video shows Sediuk starting to speak before Adele accepted the first Grammy on the telecast, but he was shooed away by presenter Jennifer Lopez.

Will Smith slapped the 24-year-old last year after attempting to kiss him on the red carpet of the Moscow premiere of “Men in Black III.”

Los Angeles police said Sediuk was detained by private security, and they had no details on the incident. Police increased security at the Grammys show due to the ongoing hunt for an ex-officer. - Sapa-AP
