the flash Star Ezra Miller pleaded not guilty to burglary charges this morning in Vermont.
Cleared to appear remotely early Monday for the Green Mountain State Superior Court Criminal Division session, Miller was asked to stay away from the neighbor he walked into earlier this year.
Along with neighbor Isaac Winokur, Miller was also banned from interacting with fellow Vermont resident Aiden Early as a condition of their release.
Miller faces a maximum of 26 years behind bars as well as more than $2,000 in fines if convicted of the charges stemming from the Spring incident which involved the theft of three bottles of liquor – gin, vodka and rum – in Winokur’s pantry.
In a jovial and heartbreaking mood Monday morning, the casually dressed actor is scheduled to return to court by Superior Court Judge Kerry A. McDonald-Cady, virtually or in person, at a specified future date for further proceedings in this case.
With more than pennies potentially at stake for Warner Bros. Pictures and the long-awaited $200 million budget studio the flash next year, Miller, who identifies non-binarily, agreed to five terms and conditions, the most pressing being that the actor “cannot have any contact with Isaac Winokur or Aiden Early, whether by phone, in person, by email, by text, by posting on social media” and “may not abuse or harass them either,” McDonald-Cady ordered.
“We agree to these terms,” said Miller’s attorney, Lisa Skelkrot, who sat down with the actor in her office in Burlington, VT.
In response to those conditions, Miller told the judge, “I understand.”
In an early August posting now by all accounts cleared from the Vermont State Police website, cops said, “Following an investigation that included surveillance video and statements, probable cause was found to charge Ezra M. Miller with the misdemeanor felony. burglary in an unoccupied dwelling”. Claiming they were in the house that wasn’t theirs looking for ingredients for a recipe for their mother, the actor was also charged with misdemeanor petty larceny for three stolen liquor bottles.
Now, just over two months later, Miller said they “suffered from complex mental health issues and had begun ongoing treatment.”
Without completely erasing last year’s crash and burn for Miller, or their second-degree assault arrest in Hawaii in April, today’s result continues to prolong the turmoil for the David-led Warner Bros Discovery. Zaslav as he seeks to lock in a long-term plan to effectively reset and monetize his DC properties, with the flash a shining jewel in the crown. Lacking much leeway with a film that features Miller in nearly every shot, the months of behind-the-scenes effort by corporate bigwigs, Miller’s CAA agency, family and friends have tried to get the actor they needed.
Certainly dustings and other questionable actions from Aloha State to Vermont to Iceland to Germany and more by a seemingly frayed and spiraling Miller had put WB on the back foot into a human and public relations nightmare. With their ongoing treatment program and some LA-set Glow reshoots under their belt over the past few weeks, Miller also had a successful meeting earlier this fall with movie presidents Warner Bros. Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy to apologize for all the legal and media spotlight their behavior has caused. Yet, as basically finished the flash headed for a late June 23 release date, Issa Rae has spoken publicly about what many have said OTR about how Miller and Hollywood’s actions should have long since slipped beyond the bounds of tolerability.

naming names, Rap shit! creator Rae recently said She magazine: “What’s going on with Ezra Miller is, to me, a microcosm of Hollywood. There’s this person who is a repeat offender, who behaves in an atrocious way, and instead of shutting them down and shutting down production, there’s an effort to save the movie and them. This is a clear example of Hollywood’s efforts to save itself and protect offenders. So don’t do that, and maybe women can thrive. They won’t have to live in fear to keep quiet because it will ruin their careers. It’s just a constant pattern of abuse that will only persist if Hollywood continues to insist on it.
With Miller in mind, Rae went on to say of Tinseltown, “It’s literally the worst industry when it comes to punishing people for misdeeds and actions because money will always reign supreme. .”
Although the viral video of Miller apparently choking a customer at a Reykjavik bar in the spring never led to an arrest or charges, the actor has been arrested twice in Hawaii in the past 12 months. In addition to the Hawaii and Vermont charges, Miller, 30, also faced allegations of sexual abuse. There was also the issue of the temporary harassment prevention order they were subjected to earlier this year by a 12-year-old child and mother in Greenfield, MA after claiming the actor had threatened them.
Perhaps most damningly, the parents of now 18-year-old Tokata Iron Eyes filed for a protective order against Miller in June of this year. Parents accused the actor of grooming and brainwashing the minor when she was just 12 and flooding her with alcohol and drugs such as pot and LSD in 2021. his parents’ claims about Miller’s psychologically controlling and manipulative behavior,” Tokata pushed back in June in Miller’s defense. “My father and his allegations are weightless and frankly transphobic and based on the idea that I am somehow incapable of having coherent thought or opposing opinions to those of my loved ones who are concerned for my good. -be,” she said in a statement on social media. media.
Today’s hearing in Vermont was originally scheduled for September 26, but was pushed back to later this summer. Delayed many times since its first announcement in 2014 for directorial problems and the Covid pandemic among others, the flash the film is on track for a June 23 release, for now.
