Ezra Miller, 29, was arrested for the second time in less than a month on April 19. The Flash and Fantastic Beasts star was arrested for second-degree assault at a private residence in Pāhoa, Hawaii on Tuesday morning, according to Variety. It comes just three weeks after he was arrested for the first time for disorderly conduct and harassment in Hilo, Hawaii on March 28.
During the most recent arrest, “patrol officers responded to a report of an assault that occurred at a get-together in the Leilani Estates subdivision in lower Puna,” Variety further reported. According to the Hawaii Police Department, Ezra allegedly became “irate” after he was asked to leave, leading him to allegedly throw a chair, who allegedly struck a 26-year-old woman on the forehead, resulting in an approximate half-inch cut. Despite the injury, the woman reportedly refused treatment on the scene.
The actual arrest took place around 1:30 a.m., the outlet says, and happened when Ezra was apparently on a roadway during a traffic stop at the intersection of Highway 130 and Kukula Street in Kea‘au. He was then reportedly released at 4:05 a.m., pending further investigation. The investigation remains active, the outlet concluded.
Before his latest arrest, Ezra made headlines for the first arrest at a bar, where he apparently “became agitated while patrons at the bar began singing karaoke.” Reports say he started “yelling obscenities” and “grabbed the microphone from a 23-year-old woman singing karaoke … and later lunged at a 32-year-old man playing darts.” The bar’s owner reportedly tries to calm him down but wasn’t successful, leading to the police coming.
After his first arrest, he was reportedly charged with one count of disorderly conduct (grabbing the mic from the karaoke singer) and one count of harassment (lunging at the dart player) and his bail was set for $500, which he provided and was released from custody.
