Brad Pitt submitted to a drug and alcohol test early on during the investigation into allegations he abused his son … but it was not something he was forced to do.
Sources close to investigators tell TMZ … the test went down within a couple days of the alleged incident on the plane. We’re told Pitt voluntarily provided a urine sample in an attempt to show he had nothing to hide, and to clear up any “exaggerations.”
As we first reported … both sides agree he drank heavily on the plane, but Angelina Jolie‘s people say it was after the alleged incident with Maddox — Brad’s camp says it was before.
Obviously, the test — first reported “In Touch” — wouldn’t show when Pitt had been drinking, but we’re told he wanted the test to blunt any claims he’s abusing drugs or alcohol. DCFS did not require it for its investigation … Pitt simply offered.
We’re told the test results are not in yet.
