BRAD IN ADOPTION CRISIS!

By JULIA ETHERINGTON

Brad Pitt was once arrested by cops for indecent exposure — and his brush with the law could come back to haunt him as he tries to adopt Angelina Jolie's children.

Adoption officials are certain to review Brad's embarrassing police file uncovered by The National Enquirer. Even though the arrest happened when Brad was starting out as an actor, it could prove to be a sticking point in his bid to become the legal dad to Maddox, four, and Zahara, 11 months.

The offense dates back to 1988 when Brad was 25. He was arrested for mooning at motorists along the Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu, California.

The incident happened when Brad was filming in Malibu Canyon. The charge was subsequently reduced to the misdemeanor of disturbing the peace.
