Ezra Miller, best known as the DCEU’s Barry Allen, a.k.a. The Flash, has reportedly been arrested in Hawaii for disorderly conduct and harassment.
The Flash movie star Ezra Miller has reportedly been arrested in Hawaii for disorderly conduct and harassment. Miller was cast as the cinematic iteration of The Flash, as Grant Gustin portrays the TV incarnation on The CW. While a movie was announced all the way back in 2014, the project faced multiple delays. As Miller has been attached to the DC role for years, the DCEU star who is portraying the Scarlet Speedster appears to have landed in a new controversy.
This isn’t the first time that Miller has gotten themselves in hot water. In April 2020, a video came out of Miller choking a young woman in Reykjavik, Iceland. While the clip was brief, it featured Miller putting their hands on the woman’s throat before dragging her down to the ground. Following the video’s release, Miller was never placed under investigation. Almost two years after the 2020 incident, Miller has landed in a new scandal as of last weekend.
In a new report from Hawaii News Now, Miller was arrested and charged by Hawaii police at a Karaoke bar. TheWrap confirmed with the local police that the 29-year-old actor was indeed the person from Hawaii News Now‘s report. Per their report, Miller had caused tension as they were “yelling obscenities and at one point grabbed the microphone from a 23-year-old woman singing karaoke…and later lunged at a 32-year-old man playing darts.” According to the local police, Miller posted $500 dollars bail and has been released.
While further details are likely to emerge over the coming days and weeks, Warner Bros. nor Miller’s representatives have made any statements about the star’s arrest in Hilo, Hawaii. Whether or not this will affect Miller’s involvement with his respective Warner Bros. roles remain to be seen. Not only is Miller is attached to The Flash and the larger DCEU franchise, but also to the Fantastic Beasts movies as Credence Barebone/Aurelius Dumbledore. Miller is also reprising the role in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, which is being released in April.
Miller, who recently joined social media on Instagram in late 2021, has so far also not made any comments since their release. It also remains to be seen if any of the involved people at the Karaoke bar will be speaking to the press following last weekend’s events. Time will tell what possible consequences will potentially follow The Flash star as the public now awaits additional details about the Hawaii incident.
