The Flash actor, Ezra Miller, has been charged with burglary after they allegedly broke into a home in the US state of Vermont and stole bottles of alcohol.

The 29-year-old non-binary actor was charged in Stamford, Vermont, Variety has reported.

According to a police report, officials were notified of a burglary on 1 May in the town of Stamford, and on 7 August the Fantastic Beasts star was located and issued with a citation to appear in Vermont Superior Court on 26 September.

"As a result of an investigation that included surveillance videos and statements, probable cause was found to charge Ezra M Miller with the offence of felony burglary into an unoccupied dwelling," police said in a statement on Monday (8 August), the BBC reports. 

This is the latest in a string of controversies for Miller.

They were arrested twice in Hawaii. Once over "disorderly conduct and harassment" at a bar after patrons started singing karaoke and the second time for assaulting a woman at a party

In June, reports surfaced that Miller had a temporary restraining order filed against them after the mother of a 12-year-old alleged the actor repeatedly acted inappropriately towards the child and brandished a gun.

This filed order was followed by the family of an 18-year-old requesting a protection order against the actor in regard to their child, Tokota Iron Eyes, who allegedly met the actor when they were 12, but authorities were unable to "locate or serve" the actor.

A Rolling Stone investigation reported in late June that Miller had been living at a Vermont farm with a 25-year-old mother and her three children, who are between the ages of one and five.

The property doubles as an unlicensed cannabis farm and has several firearms on the premises, the report details.

Miller is due to star as the titular character in DC's upcoming film The Flash, the film is scheduled to be released next year but many have been questioning whether that decision will be backtracked following Miller’s growing controversies.

Although in June there were rumours Warner Bros were considering dropping Miller from the DC universe, Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav reiterated last week that The Flash release would still go ahead: “We have seen The Flash, Black Adam and Shazam 2. We are very excited about them.”

“We’ve seen them,” Zaslav continued. “We think they are terrific, and we think we can make them even better,” as reported by Variety.

Attitude has contacted representatives for Miller for comment.
