The actor, Ezra Miller, was arrested in Hawaii over the weekend after getting agitated by karaoke singers. 

Police say the Justice League star, who identifies as queer/non-binary, "became agitated while patrons at the bar began singing karaoke" on Sunday 27 March.

A post on the Hawaii Police Department Facebook page says Miller was arrested shortly after midnight on 28 March and was charged with "disorderly conduct and harassment after an incident at a bar in Hilo."

It goes on to say: "On Sunday, March 27, at 11:30 p.m., South Hilo patrol officers responded to a report of disorderly patron at a bar on Silva Street.

"During the course of their investigation, police determined that the man, later identified as Ezra Miller, became agitated while patrons at the bar began singing karaoke."

Miller is said to have begun "yelling obscenities and at one point grabbed the microphone from a 23-year-old woman singing karaoke (disorderly conduct offense) and later lunged at a 32-year-old man playing darts (harassment offense)."

Police say the bar owner asked Miller to calm down several times "to no avail".

Miller has since been released after paying the $500 bail. 

Ezra is known for his roles as The Flash in DC's Justice LeagueThe Perks Of Being A Wallflower, and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and the sequel, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

He is next set to appear in the third film of the series, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, which is released on 8 April. 

Attitude has approached representatives for Miller for comment.
