Body camera footage of the flash and Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets The recent arrest of star Ezra Miller at a karaoke bar in Hawaii has surfaced online. A nearly three-minute clip of body camera footage first surfaced on TMZ Wednesday, showing Miller apprehended by authorities on March 29 for disorderly conduct and harassment. In the video, Miller claims they filmed themselves being mugged to turn into NFT art. The video also shows Miller repeatedly asking for the name and badge number of the officer who arrested them, and alleging they were attacked by another bar patron who “declared himself a Nazi.”
“I got mugged and started filming,” Miller says in the video. “Let me show you the video. I’ve been mugged in this bar, twice in a row. I film myself being mugged for NFT crypto art.”
“I’m arrested for disorderly conduct? I was assaulted,” Miller says elsewhere in the video. “You understand that, don’t you?”
Miller then repeatedly claims their 9th and 4th Amendment rights during the arrest and asks the officers not to confiscate their Flash ring. They then accuse one of the agents of having touched their genitals, and say that they are “transgender, non-binary, [and] don’t want to be searched by a man.”
Miller ultimately did not contest the disorderly conduct charge and was fined $500, with the judge dismissing the harassment charge, as well as a separate charge of obstructing a public sidewalk.
“On Sunday, March 27 at 11:30 p.m., South Hilo patrol officers responded to a disorderly patron report at a bar on Silva Street,” read a police statement at the time of Miller’s initial arrest. “During their investigation, police determined that the man, later identified as Ezra Miller, became agitated as bar patrons began to sing karaoke. Miller began shouting obscenities and a moment grabbed the microphone of a 23-year-old woman singing karaoke (disorderly conduct offence) and then lunged at a 32-year-old man playing darts (harassment offence).The bar owner asked Miller to calm down several times, to no avail.
Following the arrest, a temporary restraining order was filed against Miller by Stoyan Kojoukarov and his wife, Niegel Hayes. The couple alleged that Miller burst into their bedroom window and threatened to burn them, and stole several items from the couple, including Hayes’ passport and wallet. The restraining order was eventually dropped.
Just hours before that court appearance, Miller was arrested once again in Hawaii for second-degree assault after he allegedly threw a chair at a woman, which left him with a half-inch cut on his the head.
Earlier this year, Miller’s public behavior made headlines when they posted a cryptic video on social media, in which they appeared to target a Ku Klux Klan chapter located in Beulaville, North Carolina. Following reports of the first arrest in Hawaii, rumors had circulated that Warner Bros. had held an “emergency meeting” about Miller’s on-screen future as The Flash, though those have since been debunked.
