Earlier this year, one of Warner Bros.’ biggest scandals started: the downfall of Ezra Miller, aka the DCEU's Barry Allen. The Flash star was arrested in March after he had been charged with disorderly conduct and harassment after losing it in a Hawaiian karaoke bar.
It didn't take long for the star to be arrested once again, this time after throwing a chair at a 26-year-old woman in a home in Pahoa, on the big island of Hawaii. Since then, more than half a dozen other disturbing allegations have surfaced about the actor, putting his future as the Flash in question.
Just over two months ago, Miller's problems got even worse when they were arrested and charged with felony burglary in Stamford, Vermont. Thanks to several witness statements and surveillance videos, the star was caught stealing liquor from within someone's house.
Now, Miller has made their first appearance in court for the matter, and it looks like there is a possibility that they might be facing time In jail should the worst come through.
Ezra Miller Faces Possible Jail Time
Deadline reported that The Flash star Ezra Miller is possibly facing up to 26 years behind bars and over $2,000 in fines if they're found guilty of felony burglary charges. As of now, the star is pleading not guilty.
Earlier this year, Miller was caught entering the home of a Vermont resident, Isaac Winokur, after they had stolen three bottles of liquor from the victim's pantry.
Despite the news, Miller seemed quite happy and upbeat when they appeared in court. They're expected to have to return for more proceedings on the matter at an undecided future date. As part of their conditions, the actor will have to stay away from Wnokur, alongside another Vermont local—Aiden Early.
This means that Miller cannot have any contact with either of them, either in-person, by phone, email, text, or even social media. The actor was also barred from abusing or harassing either victim as well.
Miller's attorney, Lisa Skelkrot, declared that "[they] agree to those conditions]," while the actor themself noted aloud, "I do understand."
