On Tuesday, Miller, who plays the Flash in the DC Extended Universe, in films such as Justice League and Suicide Squad, and TV’s The Arrow, and also portrays Credence Barebone in the Fantastic Beasts movies, was arrested just after 1 a.m.
Miller’s off-screen activities have caused quite the headache at Warner Bros., the company behind both Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, which arrived in U.S. theaters on April 15, and The Flash, set for June 23, 2023. Execs reportedly held an emergency meeting on March 30, where they decided to pause further Miller appearances in the DCEU.
It was the second time in roughly three weeks that Miller ran into legal trouble in Hawaii.
According to the Hawaii Police Department, this time Miller was apprehended for an alleged second-degree assault at a residence in Pahoa. Officers say Miller “became irate” after being asked to leave a private gathering and threw a chair, which struck a 26-year-old woman on the head and left a half-inch cut. She declined medical treatment. However, Miller left and was arrested about 1:30 a.m. during a traffic stop nearby.
They were released about two-and-a-half hours later. The incident is still being investigated.
Miller was arrested March 25 in Hilo, Hawaii, on charges of disorderly conduct and harassment following an incident at a bar.
In addition, Miller is accused of obstructing a highway the day before that first arrest.
The Associated Press reported when the restraining order was dismissed that Miller’s attorney and prosecutors were working on a deal in both cases.
