DC’s “The Flash” star Ezra Miller was arrested in Hawaii late on Sunday night.
Miller was not present at the Academy Awards. They were currently in Hilo, a Hawaiian bar, where they were arrested after they reportedly “became agitated” during a karaoke session and started “yelling”, “grabbing,” and “lunging” at other people in the bar.
In 2020, Miller said in GQ that he uses they/them pronouns and made “a pointed refusal not to be gendered.”

The full statement from police can be read below, as per their Facebook page.
“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 Has Had Run-Ins With The Law Before
In June 2011, while filming “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower” in Pennsylvania, Miller was a passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over for a broken brake light. Police discovered 20 grams of marijuana in their possession. Miller was charged with drug possession but the charges were later dropped. They faced a fine of $600 dollars for two citations of disorderly conduct.
In April 2020, a video surfaced online that appeared to show Miller choking a woman and throwing her to the ground. Variety confirmed that the video took place in Reykjavik at Prikið Kaffihús, “a trendy bar in central Reykjavik that Miller frequents” when in the city. The outlet reported that a bar employee identified the person in the video as Miller and said they were escorted off the premises by staff after the incident.
