“Flash” Actor Ezra Miller To Accept Plea Deal in Vermont Burglary

Is Ezra Miller on track to become Hollywood’s new enfant terrible?

The Flash actor is due in a Vermont court on Friday where they—Miller prefers to use nongendered pronouns—are expected to accept a plea deal to avoid jail time related to a break-in on May 1 of last year. Miller had originally pleaded not guilty in October to a charge of stealing liquor from the home of a neighbor. The actor was apprehended after they were caught on surveillance footage.

According to a plea arrangement with the Vermont Superior Court in Bennington, the 30-year-old Miller is agreeing to a suspended sentence of 89 to 90 days in jail for a misdemeanor charge of unlawful trespass. They will be fined $500 plus a $192 surcharge and go on probation for one year. If two other felony charges were pursued, they could have received a jail sentence of up to 25 years.

This is not the first time Miller has been in trouble recently. They were arrested twice in Hawaii last year for disorderly conduct and harassment in a karaoke bar; they also reportedly threw a chair at a woman during a private gathering in Pāhoa.

A video also surfaced of Miller choking a woman at a bar in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Add to this the protection order filed against Miller in June by the parents of Tokata Iron Eyes, now 18, who claim the actor had plied her with alcohol and drugs when she was a minor.

Miller has apologized for their recent behavior. In August they issued a statement admitting they recently gone through a time of “intense crisis.” He added: “I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment.”
“I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior,” they added. “I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life.”

Despite Miller’s brushes with the law, The Flash is still expected to debut in theaters in June.
