Fantastic Beasts star Ezra Miller arrested on suspicion of assault in Hawaii | Hawaii

Fantastic Beasts star Ezra Miller has been arrested on suspicion of assault in Hawaii just weeks after Big Island police arrested the actor on charges of disorderly conduct and assault.

The 29-year-old star, who is also known for playing Flash in Justice League films, became “angry” after being told to leave a private apartment and reportedly threw a chair at a woman’s forehead met, according to a statement from the Hawaii Police Department.

Police later arrested Miller and released him during a traffic stop around 1:30 a.m. The 26-year-old woman was treated for a laceration about half an inch across her forehead, police said.

The arrest comes as Miller faces harassment and disorderly conduct charges after an incident in March at a karaoke bar, in which police said the disgruntled actor grabbed a microphone from a woman and lunged at a man playing darts.

Indictments for the arrest of the karaoke bar and a separate traffic incident were scheduled for Tuesday. Miller was embroiled in a row in downtown Hilo last month that saw police respond after the actor refused to leave the area and blocked a sidewalk, said Kenneth Quiocho, the Hawaii Deputy Police Chief.

Francis Alcain, Miller’s attorney, had requested that Tuesday’s hearing, originally scheduled for next week, be brought forward, telling the court that the actor “has various time-sensitive work commitments in California and/or New York” and needed an earlier hearing solve the problem Alcain did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Associated Press.

The star’s legal troubles pose a threat to her career. Rolling Stone reported earlier this month that following Miller’s initial arrest, executives from Warner Bros and DC held an emergency meeting, at which they decided to pause any future projects with the actor.

Miller’s latest arrest comes days after the US release of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, in which the actor reprises his role as Credence Barebone. Miller, who also starred in We Need to Talk About Kevin and The Perks of Being a Wallflower, is set to star in a standalone Flash film slated for release in 2023.
