A felony burglary charge has been filed against actor Ezra Miller in Stamford, Vermont, the latest incident involving the embattled star of "The Flash." Vermont State Police reported Monday that they responded to a burglary complaint in Stamford on May 1 and found several bottles of alcohol had been removed from a residence while the homeowners were absent.
Police consulted surveillance footage and interviewed witnesses and subsequently charged Miller. A citation was issued to Miller to appear in Vermont Superior Court on Sept. 26 for arraignment after he was found shortly before midnight Sunday.
Miller's legal woes are exacerbated by the felony charge and allegations of erratic behavior. It is reported that the 29-year-old actor was arrested twice earlier this year on Hawaii's Big Island, including for disorderly conduct and harassment at a karaoke bar earlier this year. A second-degree assault was the charged in the second incident.
The parents of 18-year-old Tokata Iron Eyes, a Native American activist, filed a protection order against Miller earlier this year, alleging that Miller groomed their child and engaged in other inappropriate behaviors with her as a minor since she was 12 years old. Those allegations were false, according to Tokata Iron Eyes.
The attorney for Miller did not immediately respond to requests for comment regarding the Vermont felony charge or the protective order pertaining to Tokata Iron Eyes. As the Flash, Miller has appeared in several films for Warner Bros in addition to DC Films, including the upcoming solo film from Warner Bros in June 2023.
Although Warner Bros. last week shuttered the nearly completed film Batgirl, the studio has stated it is still committed to releasing The Flash. As part of Warner Bros Discovery's earnings report last week, David Zaslav mentioned "The Flash." We've seen "The Flash," "Black Adam," and "Shazam." "We are extremely enthusiastic about them," said Zaslav. “We have high hopes for them, and we are confident that we can improve them even further.
