Ezra Miller, who starred as the Flash in Justice League and has their own solo Flash movie on the way, was arrested or charges of disorderly conduct and harassment, according to Variety.
The incident happened in the town of Hilo, Hawaii. According to the Hawai’i County Police Department, South Hilo officers were called to a bar on Sunday evening at 11:30 p.m. on account of Miller, who reportedly became “yelling obscenities” while other patrons sang karaoke. He also “grabbed the microphone from a 23-year-old woman singing karaoke and later lunged at a 32-year-old man playing darts.”
Miller posted their $500 bail and was released.
Ezra Miller appeared onscreen at the Oscars
Coincidentally, Miller was arrested on the same night as the Oscars, where he was featured in a clip from Zack Snyder’s Justice League. The scene where the Flash gives himself a pep talk before accessing the Speed Force. That scene won an online poll to determine the most cheer-worthy moment from the movies, Zack Snyder’s fans being very organized online. Although, funnily enough, apparently the scene received no cheers during the actual ceremony. Maybe that’s why Miller was in a bad mood?
And of course, this was the same Oscars ceremony where Will Smith slapped Chris Rock onstage, so it was a night of celebrities behaving badly.
This isn’t the first time Miller has come under fire for their behavior. In 2020, a video of them appearing to choke a woman in a bar in Reykjavik, Iceland went viral, although there were few repercussions.
The Flash is scheduled to come out on June 23, 2023. Miller will also feature in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore on April 15.
