The Flash star Ezra Miller was arrested by law enforcement after an incident at a karaoke bar in Hawaii.
The Wrap brings word that The Flash star Ezra Miller is once again in trouble with the police, this time after being arrested in Hilo, Hawaii. According to the Hawaii County Police Department, Miller had a run-in with South Hilo patrol officers on Monday morning over a disturbance at a karaoke bar. The 29-year-old actor was charged for disorderly conduct and harassment but was released after posting $500 bail. Here is the official statement:
“Shortly after midnight on Monday, March 28, 2022, a 29-year-old man visiting from Vermont was arrested and charged for disorderly conduct and harassment after an incident at a bar in Hilo.
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. 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). The bar owner asked Miller to calm down several times to no avail.
Miller was arrested and charged on both offenses and total bail was set at $500. They provided bail and was released.”
Ezra Miller recently wrapped filming the Warner Bros. film The Flash, which is currently scheduled to hit theaters in June 2023. Miller’s arrest comes a month before the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, another Warner Bros. project, which sees the actor reprising the role of Credence Barebone, a key figure in the Harry Potter spin-off series.
In 2020, Ezra Miller was criticized for a viral video that appeared to show the actor choking a woman and throwing her to the ground. The incident took place outside a bar in Reykjavik, Iceland. Miller was escorted from the premises but the woman did not file charges against the actor.
Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash is inspired by the Flashpoint comic book storyline, which followed Barry Allen as he navigated an altered DC Universe. Written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Andy Kuber, Flashpoint radically altered the status of the DC Comics universe and led to the launch of the New 52 titles.
In addition to Ezra Miller, The Flash also features Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck as two separate versions of Batman, Ron Livingston as Henry Allen, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Antje Traue as Faora-Ul and Sasha Calle as Supergirl. Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Rudy Mancuso and Luke Brandon Field are also on board in undisclosed roles.
The Flash opens on June 23, 2023. Stay tuned for all the latest news regarding Ezra Miller and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
