Ezra Miller was arrested in Hawaii and charged with harassment and disorderly conduct.
Following an incident at a pub in Hilo, the Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore actor was arrested in the early hours of Monday morning (March 28).
“Shortly after midnight on Monday, March 28, 2022, a 29-year-old male visiting from Vermont was detained and charged with disorderly conduct and harassment after an incident at a bar in Hilo,” the Hawaii Police Department stated in a statement.
“South Hilo patrol officers responded to a report of an unruly patron at a bar on Silva Street at 11.30 p.m. on Sunday, March 27.” Police discovered that the individual, later identified as Ezra Miller, became angry while bar patrons began singing karaoke over the course of their inquiry. Miller started yelling obscenities and snatched the microphone from a 23-year-old lady singing karaoke (disorderly conduct offense) before lunging towards a 32-year-old man who was playing darts (harassment offence). Miller was repeatedly encouraged to cool down by the bartender, but he refused.”
Miller was detained and charged with both offenses, but was eventually released after posting the $500 (S$680) bond.
Miller acknowledged in 2020 that they don’t “want” people to “understand” them.
“I am clandestine,” stated the actor of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
People don’t grasp what I’m saying. I don’t want them to, do I? “I want a certain level of perplexity, and I’m fine with sharing it.” I have plans that no one knows about, not even in my closest circles.
“I mean, I tell stories in a variety of ways; I’m working on a variety of projects at the same time.” They’re all connected. Some people use my public image, while others don’t.” Service is my prerogative. I’ve come to do what I can for as many people as I can.”
