‘The Flash’ star Ezra Miller pleads not guilty to burglary charges, faces up to 26 years in prison if convicted

Hollywood actor Ezra Miller, who claims to be “nonbinary” and uses “they/them” pronouns, was catapulted into global stardom after being cast as “The Flash” for the DC Comics superhero movies … but Miller has been in a steady decline ever since attaining such heights.

On Monday, Miller pleaded not guilty during a Vermont court hearing to two criminal charges of burglary that, if convicted, could land him behind bars for up to 26 years, Breitbart reported.

That is just the latest development in the ongoing decline and series of shocking and disturbing incidents that Miller has now attributed to “complex mental health issues.”

Charged with burglary

According to the Manchester Journal, Miller was charged with and has pleaded not guilty to two counts of burglary after he was caught on surveillance cameras stealing bottles of liquor from his neighbor’s home.

Miller was permitted to remain free for now on the condition that he not speak to or harass the neighbor, and was prohibited from setting foot on that neighbor’s property.

Per court documents, the neighbor’s security camera footage showed Miller stealing at least three bottles of liquor and handing them off to an unknown person waiting in a car outside. The footage also showed Miller attempting to steal another bottle but putting it back after he noticed the camera that was recording him.

The burglarized homeowner was said to have expressed their concerns and fears about Miller to the police due to Miller’s “odd and erratic” behavior as well as the fact that he was “unpredictable” and “owned several firearms.”

Timeline of Miller’s downfall

As noted, according to People magazine, this is just the latest in a series of incidents for Miller in which he has courted trouble, starting with a bar fight in Iceland in April 2020 in which he appeared to try and choke a woman during a “serious altercation.”

In January 2022, in a now-deleted Instagram post, Miller appeared to threaten to shoot and kill members of the Ku Klux Klan, and then just two months later, was arrested and criminally charged and had a restraining order placed against him following two separate incidents in Hawaii in March 2022.

The first of those incidents involved charges of disorderly conduct and harassment following an explicit outburst at a karaoke bar, while the temporary restraining order was issued a day later in response to allegations that he had broken into the home of a couple and threatened to kill them both. Miller was also arrested and charged with assault a month later in Hawaii during an April incident in which, during a confrontation with police, he angrily threw a chair that hit and injured another woman in the head.

Perhaps the most disturbing allegations against Miller came in June of this year, however, when the parents of young girls came forward separately to accuse Miller of grooming and manipulating their 12-year-old daughters and acting menacingly towards their families.

“Having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment,” Miller said in a statement in August, according to People. “I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe, and productive stage in my life.”
