Police in Stamford, Vermont have charged non-binary actor Ezra Miller with burglary for allegedly stealing liquor bottles from a man’s home. The charge is just the latest of many charges against the 29-year-old actor.

Despite all the recent scandals surrounding the actor, the film is still set to be released next year.

In June, the parents of Tokata Iron Eyes, a Native American activist, asked a tribal court to issue a protective order against Miller. Iron Eyes’ parents said Miller allegedly controlled their daughter for years through bullying, stealing her belongings and using drugs.

Miller reportedly met Iron Eyes at the Standing Rock reservation in South Dakota in 2016. At the time, she was 12 and Miller was 23. As their friendship grew over the next few years, her parents alleged that Miller had given the minor alcohol, cannabis, and LSD. Her parents said they had to spend three weeks “detoxifying” her after she spent a long time with Miller.

Iron Eyes’ parents then said she dropped out of private school in Massachusetts and moved to Vermont to live near Miller when she was still underage. When her parents visited her in Vermont, they said Miller took her driver’s license, car keys and ATM card, essentially setting her up. They also said they saw bruises on her body that Miller allegedly caused.

In June, Iron Eyes released a statement on social media thanking her “comrade” Miller for her “loving support and invaluable protection” and accusing her parents of subjecting her to “emotional and psychological manipulation” at their home.

In late March, Hawaii police arrested Miller for disorderly conduct and harassment after Miller became aggressive with customers at a karaoke bar. Miller said they themselves were assaulted twice at the bar. Miller reportedly offered to show police video footage of the alleged assault. Miller accused an arresting officer of touching their genitals and demanded to be searched by a female officer, due to Miller’s non-binary and transgender identities.

In the same month, two residents of Hilo, Hawaii, who freed Miller from jail for the previously mentioned arrest, sought a temporary restraining order against Miller after the actor allegedly broke into the couple’s bedroom and allegedly told the male partner, “I’m going to bury you and your slut wife. The couple accused Miller of stealing a social security card, wallet, passport, driver’s license and bank cards. Miller had stayed with the couple.

In April 2020, video of Miller taken at a bar in Reykjavik, Iceland appeared to show Miller choking a female bar patron. The seven-second video did not include enough context to fully understand what happened. The woman appeared to laugh and smile before Miller grabbed her. However, Variety reported that Miller was “frustrated and angry” at the time.

Although the video went viral on social media, bar workers reportedly escorted Miller off the premises and police were not called to the scene.

Miller’s legal troubles forced film studio Warner Brothers to put all future film projects by the non-binary actor on hold.

Director and comic book fan Kevin Smith, who has previously directed episodes of the flash television show on the CW, said in a recent video that recently merged company Warner Brother Discover should have considered canceling Miller’s future superhero movies rather than shelving a Batgirl movie featuring a character transgender.

“It’s the most disconcerting thing,” Smith said on his video show. Hollywood chatter. “I don’t care how much the bat girl The movie is. Nobody in this movie is complicated or has anything in their real life that you have to market to. In the flash movie, we all know there’s a big problem. Flash is the Reverse-Flash in real life.
