Ezra Miller was arrested by police in Hawaii and charged with disorderly conduct and harassment following an incident at a small bar in Hilo late Sunday night and early Monday morning.
According to the police report, Miller (who uses they/them pronouns) became “agitated” and started “yelling obscenities” when patrons began singing karaoke. They were alleged to have grabbed the microphone from one singer and later “lunged” at a man playing darts.
“On Sunday, March 27, at 11:30 p.m., South Hilo patrol officers responded to a report of disorderly patron at a bar on Silva Street,” police said in the report. “During the course of their investigation, police determined that the man, later identified as Ezra Miller, became agitated while patrons at the bar began singing karaoke. Miller began yelling obscenities and at one point grabbed the microphone from a 23-year-old woman singing karaoke (disorderly conduct offense) and later lunged at a 32-year-old man playing darts (harassment offense).”
Miller was taken into custody early Monday morning and later released after posting $500 bail.
This is not the first public incident for the 29-year-old actor, who plays the role of speedy superhero The Flash in Warner Bros.' DCEU films and of Credence Barebone in the Fantastic Beasts film series, including the upcoming sequel The Secrets of Dumbledore, scheduled for release on April 15. In 2020 they appeared to grab a woman by the throat and throw her to the ground at a bar at the Prikið Kaffihús bar in Reykjavik, Iceland.
A video of the incident appeared to show Miller approaching a female fan and asking her, “Did you want to fight? Is that the deal?” They then appeared to grab her neck and shove her to the ground. Miller was escorted off the premises.
The police did not provide information on Miller’s future court dates but did, unfortunately, use an improper pronoun when referencing the actor in their report.
