Actor Ezra Miller Arrested Again on Hawaii’s Big Island

HONOLULU — Ezra Miller was arrested on suspicion of assault early Tuesday, the second time the actor known for playing the Flash in “Justice League” films has been arrested in Hawaii in recent weeks.

Miller became furious after being asked not to attend a Big Island get-together and tossing a chair. A woman was hit in the forehead by the chair. According to a press release issued by the Hawaii Police Department.

According to police, the half-inch (1.3 cm) mark on her forehead was not treated by the woman.

Miller was described as a visitor to Vermont at the age of 29 by police. He was taken into custody during a traffic stop, and later released for further investigation.

About twelve hours after Miller’s arrest, the actor appeared via Zoom for a court hearing for an arrest last month at a Big Island karaoke bar.

Miller was found not guilty of disorderly conduct by pleading no contest and was given a $500 penalty and a stay from Margarita Village, Hilo.

Miller was also accused of harassment following police claims that Miller grabbed the mic from a singer and lunged at an actor playing darts.

Miller was aggravated by a rendition of the Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper ballad “Shallow,” Hawaii Police Assistant Chief Kenneth Quiocho said.

Prosecutors dropped harassment charges as part of a plea agreement.

Miller received a traffic ticket after being called by police to investigate a disturbance in downtown Hilo. Miller refused to cooperate, was disruptive to traffic flow and refused to leave the scene, Quiocho stated.

Miller’s Hawaii attorney didn’t immediately return a message seeking comment on the latest arrest. Another lawyer and a Miller representative also didn’t immediately respond to messages requesting comment.

During the hearing, there was no mention made of the most recent arrest.

Big Island attorney Francis Alcain had requested Tuesday’s court hearing, previously scheduled for next week, be moved up. Alcain said in a court filing his client “has various time sensitive work obligations in California and/or New York,” and needs an earlier hearing “to resolve this matter.”

After Miller was released on bail of $500 for his karaoke arrest, a Big Island couple applied for a temporary order for a restraining or. The petition claimed Miller invaded their bedrooms and threatened them. The couple’s attorney asked for a temporary restraining order and a judge dismissed their case.

William Dean, the attorney representing the couple declined to explain why his clients did not want to seek a restraining or against Miller.

Judge M. Kanani Laubach applied Miller’s bail to the $500 fine, leaving a $30 fee to pay.

Miller also has a key role in the third installment of the Harry Potter spinoff “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.”
