‘The Flash’ star Ezra Miller has pleaded no contest and was fined $500 for disorderly conduct at karaoke bar in Hilo, Hawaii last month – just hours after being arrested for a second time within weeks.

The actor – who identifies as nonbinary and uses they/them pronouns – appeared in court via video call yesterday, in an appearance originally scheduled for April 26.

A clean-shaven Miller, 29, pleaded ‘no contest’ to disorderly conduct following an arrest at Margarita Village Bar in Hilo, which Judge Kanani Laubach ordered them to stay away from.

The judge also dismissed a charge of harassment from the karaoke bar incident as well as a charge of obstructing a public sidewalk in a separate instance on March 19 in exchange for Miller’s plea, Hawaii Tribune Herald reports.

Miller was arrested on March 27 after they allegedly harassed a number of patrons with belligerent behavior at the bar. 

The incident began when Miller reportedly hurled obscenities at a 23-year-old woman singing karaoke. The actor also tried to grab the microphone from her mid-song. 

That same night, it was also claimed Miller lunged at a 32-year-old man who was playing darts at the bar. Police were eventually called in to deal with the out-of-control star.

It comes as they were on Tuesday taken into custody for second-degree assault after police responded to reports of an assault in a subdivision on the archipelago’s Big Island of Hawaii.

Authorities were called to the Leilani State Subdivision in Pāhoa shortly after 1am yesterday, Hawaii News Now reported.

Authorities said Miller became irate after they were asked to leave a gathering at a residence and threw a chair, striking a 26-year-old woman on the forehead. 

The unidentified woman was left with a half-inch cut but refused treatment, police said. The Hollywood star was arrested 20 minutes after the attack during a traffic stop at the intersection of Highway 130 and Kukula Street in Kea’au. 

Miller was released at 4am pending an investigation, police said in a statement.   

They were taken into custody Tuesday just hours before a scheduled court hearing in connection with disorderly conduct and harassment charges stemming from the March incident. 

The actor, who plays The Flash in the DC Cinematic Universe, was also hit with a restraining order by a couple who bailed them out of jail. 

The pair said Miller threatened them and robbed them while they were staying in the couple’s Hawaii home. The couple has since dropped the petition for a restraining order.

Warner Bros and DC executives held an emergency meeting on March 30 where they agreed to halt any future projects involving Miller, following their arrest at the karaoke bar in Hilo, sources told Rolling Stone. 

Insiders told the publication that Miller, who has a history of ‘meltdowns’, will not be involved in any public appearances for the DC Cinematic Universe despite Miller’s The Flash slated to premier next year.  

Following the karaoke bar incident last month, a local couple who Miller had met at a local farmer’s market and let the actor stay in their house bailed Miller out of jail on a $500 bond following the arrest, Radar reported.

The husband, who has not been publicly named, alleged that after returning home from jail, Miller had a breakdown and threatened his wife, saying: ‘I will bury you and your s*** wife.’

He told police the actor then stole his wallet and his wife’s passport.

The Hawaii couple dropped their petition for a temporary restraining order against Miller on April 12.

According to court documents, a judge dismissed the case after the couple requested it.

A restraining order petition had been granted as it was ‘needed to prevent future harassment’, according to court documents. 

William Dean, a lawyer who represents the couple, has not commented on why his clients no longer want to pursue the petition that accused Miller of bursting into their bedroom and threatening them.

When contacted by DailyMail.com on Tuesday, Dean said his clients’ case had been dismissed and he was not aware of Miller’s arrest prior to the call. 

He confirmed no further hearings will be held now that the case is dismissed. 

Miller previously drew controversy in April 2020 when a video circulated that allegedly showed the actor choking a woman while at a bar in Reykjavik, Iceland, Variety reported.

In the video, Miller grabs the woman by the throat and attempts to throw her to the ground.

‘Woah, bro. Bro,’ the person filming says.

A source told Variety the incident took place after ‘pushy fans’ approached Miller and the actor lost their temper.

Miller has never publicly addressed the incident.

Miller also made headlines in January when they posted a now-deleted video on Instagram threatening members of the Ku Klux Klan operating in Beulaville, North Carolina.

Miller was seen telling members of the Klan to kill themselves with their own guns, otherwise ‘we’ll do it for you if that’s what you want’.

Miller also had a run in with the law in 2011 where they were arrested for drug possession.

The actor, then 19, was the passenger in a vehicle in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania when they were pulled over and cops discovered 20 grams of marijuana on them.

A judge would later drop the drug possession charge, but they were charged with two citations of disorderly conduct and ordered to pay a fine of $600.
