Ezra Miller has been granted a restraining order by two residents in Hilo, a small Hawaiian town where Miller was arrested earlier this week. The ‘Fantastic Beasts’ and ‘The Flash’ actor was released from prison after posting $500 bail and then reportedly threatened a couple at the property where they were staying in Hawaii , reports Associated Press.
Police escorted Miller off the property hours after posting bail, according to Hawaii Deputy Police Chief Kenneth Quiocho. A resident of the property called police asking for advice on removing two housemates. The restraining order against Miller states that the actor entered the Hilo couple’s bedroom and threatened them. Miller is said to have stolen some of the couple’s belongings, including a passport and a wallet.
diversity has reached out to Miller’s rep for further comment.
The restraining order against Miller was filed Tuesday, March 29. The actor was arrested on Monday March 28 and charged with disorderly conduct and harassment following an incident at a bar. The Hawaii County Police Department said in a post that South Hilo officials responded to a report of a disorderly bar patron. Police found Miller had become unruly while other guests sang karaoke and began “yelling profanities.” Miller “then grabbed the microphone of a 23-year-old woman singing karaoke and later lunged at a 32-year-old man playing darts.”
According to Quiocho, Miller has been the source of 10 police calls in Hilo since March 7. It is not known at this time how long Miller was in Hawaii.
Miller’s arrest comes just before Warner Bros.’ worldwide release of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore in April. Miller has a supporting role in the Harry Potter spinoff. The actor also plays Barry Allen/The Flash in the studio’s ongoing DC Universe. Miller’s standalone film The Flash opens in theaters on June 23, 2023.
Miller was recently featured on the Oscars program after “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” won the newly introduced Oscars category, “Celebrations.” A sequence described as “The Flash Enters the Speed Force” was voted the happiest moment in online polls. Footage of Miller’s character in the scene was shown during the Oscars broadcast.
