Ezra Miller: Justice League star arrested after allegedly ‘yelling obscenities’ in Hawaii bar

The actor, best known for playing the Flash and their role in Fantastic Beasts, was charged with disorderly conduct and harassment, police say

Ezra Miller has been arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and harassment after an alleged incident at a Hawaii bar on Sunday evening.

Police say the 29-year-old actor, best known for playing DC superhero the Flash and their recurring role in the Harry Potter spin off franchise Fantastic Beasts, was arrested in Hilo on Monday morning.

In a public statement, Hawaii police said South Hilo officers had responded to reports of a disorderly bar patron on Sunday just before midnight. Police allege that Miller had become “agitated” while other patrons sang karaoke and began “yelling obscenities”.

Police allege the actor then “grabbed the microphone from a 23-year-old woman singing karaoke and later lunged at a 32-year-old man playing darts. The bar owner asked Miller to calm down several times to no avail”.

Miller featured briefly in the Academy Awards on Sunday, with a pivotal scene of the Flash in Zack Snyder’s Justice League winning the “most cheer-worthy moment” category, a new award introduced by the Academy that is voted for by audiences at home.

Miller was released on bail on Monday police said. Miller’s representatives have not yet responded to requests for comment.

Miller is set to appear in the next Fantastic Beasts film, The Secrets of Dumbledore, in April. The Flash, which will see their super fast superhero take the leading role and recently finished production, has been delayed by Warner Brothers until 2023.
