Ezra Miller was arrested on suspicion of assault, making it the second time the actor best known for playing the Flash in the “Justice League” films has been detained in Hawaii in recent weeks.
Miller became enraged after being asked to leave a house party on the island of Hawaii and threw a chair, hitting a woman in the forehead, according to a statement from the Hawaii Police Department.
The woman was treated for a little more than a centimeter wound to her forehead, police said.
Miller, who was described by police as a 29-year-old visitor from Vermont, was arrested on the street Tuesday and released while the investigation continues.
It’s unclear whether Miller’s arrest will affect an indictment scheduled for later Tuesday stemming from the actor’s arrest last month at a Hawaiian Island Karaoke. Miller was charged with harassment and disorderly conduct after he grabbed a microphone from a woman who was singing and lunged at a man who was playing darts.
Miller was upset when the Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper ballad “Shallow” came on, Assistant Hawaii Police Chief Kenneth Quiocho said.
He would also be formally charged Tuesday in a separate traffic violation case. Police were called to a dispute in downtown Hilo last month and in that incident Miller was uncooperative with authorities, refusing to leave the scene and blocking a sidewalk, Quiocho said.
The actor’s attorney did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment on the latest arrest.
Attorney Francis Alcain had requested that Tuesday’s court hearing, previously scheduled for next week, be moved up. Alcain said in court papers that his client “has several time-sensitive work obligations in California and/or New York” and needs a soon-to-be-dated hearing to “resolve this matter.”
