PAHOA (HawaiiNewsNow) - Ezra Miller, known for playing “The Flash,” was arrested early Tuesday in Hawaii after allegedly throwing a chair at a woman and leaving her with a gash to her forehead.

It’s the latest in a string of negative headlines involving the star.

And it came on the same day that Miller appeared via Zoom in a Hilo courtroom to plead no contest to a disorderly conduct charge, which stemmed from an incident at a karaoke bar last month.

In the assault case, Hawaii Island police said Miller was taken into custody about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday for second-degree assault. Police said Miller allegedly “became irate” when asked to leave an acquaintance’s home and threw a chair at a woman.

The 26-year-old victim reported a half-inch cut to her forehead.

Miller was arrested following a traffic stop at the intersection of Highway 130 and Kukula Street.

Police said the star was subsequently released pending further investigation.

PREVIOUS COVERAGE:

Miller has played “The Flash” in several movies, but more recently has grabbed attention for their erratic behavior. Last month, Miller was arrested after allegedly ripping a microphone out of a woman’s hands and lunging at a man playing darts at the Margarita Village karaoke bar in Hilo.

On Tuesday afternoon, Miller appeared virtually in a Hilo courtroom to plead no contest to disorderly conduct stemming from that incident and agree to pay a $500 fine.

A harassment charge was dropped.

The star responded to the judge with mostly one-word answers and signed off with “aloha kakou.”
