Hollywood star Ezra Miller has been arrested disorderly conduct and harassment after an alleged incident at a popular Hawaiian nightspot.

According to Variety, the actor best known for playing DC superhero The Flash and their recurring role in the Harry Potter spin-off franchise Fantastic Beasts, was arrested in Hilo on Monday morning.

In a public tweet, the “Vermont Visitor” was arrested after South Hilo officers responded to reports of a disorderly bar patron just before midnight on Sunday.

Police allege that Miller had become “agitated” while other patrons sang karaoke and began “yelling obscenities”.

Miller then “grabbed the microphone from a 23-year-old woman singing karaoke and later lunged at a 32-year-old man playing darts.”

The bar owner allegedly asked Miller to calm down several times “to no avail”.

After being arrested and charged on offences of disorderly conduct and harassment, Miller paid the $500 bond and was released from custody.

His arrest comes at a pivotal time for Warner Bros. He plays a key role in its upcoming Harry Potter spin-off film, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, which is scheduled to begin its global theatrical rollout in April.

After appearing in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League and Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Miller will also play the titular role in their own DC film with The Flash due to hit theatres next June.

Miller’s role in the DC film was briefly acknowledged at the recent Academy Awards, with Zack Synder’s Justice League winning the “most cheer-worthy moment” category, a new award introduced by the Academy that is voted for by audiences at home.

It isn’t the first time the young actor has found themselves in trouble at a bar.

In 2020, video surfaced which appeared to show Miller choking a woman at a bar in Reykjavik, Iceland.

A source at the establishment, Prikið Kaffihús, confirmed to Variety that the incident was serious, despite some confusion after memes surfaced online. The individual, whom they identified as Miller, was escorted off the premises.

Miller also threatened to kill Ku Klux Klan members in a wild Instagram video earlier this year.

The Internet is already having a field day with the new accusations, with memes already beginning to appear on Twitter.
