Description of problem:
Plug in a Playstation 3 controller via USB, and push the PS button in the center.

I have no idea why it would want to control brightness.
SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/bluetooth/bluetoothd from 'write' accesses on the file brightness.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that bluetoothd should be allowed write access on the brightness file by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep bluetoothd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
