The charges are part of a string of arrests and reports of erratic behavior from Hawaii to Vermont.
Bennington, Vt. — Ezra Miller pleaded not guilty Monday to stealing bottles of liquor from a neighbor’s house, one of a string of arrests and reports of the “Flash” actor’s misbehavior from Hawaii to Vermont.
Miller, 30, appeared Monday in Bennington with his attorney from as far away as Burlington, Vermont, on charges of burglary and petit larceny, a misdemeanor. They accepted the conditions that they have no contact with the owner of the house and will not visit the residence.
“Ezra would like to acknowledge the love and support she has received from her family and friends, who have been instrumental in her ongoing mental health,” Miller’s attorney, Lisa Shelkrot, said via email.

Miller faces a maximum sentence of 26 years in prison if convicted. The next hearing on the matter will be held on January 13.
Vermont State Police responded to a burglary complaint in Stamford on May 1 and said they found several bottles of alcohol had been taken from a residence while the homeowner was away.
The homeowner said he has been friends with Miller for about 18 years and bought a house a year and a half ago in the town, where Miller also bought a house, according to a police affidavit. Miller was charged after police consulted surveillance footage and interviewed witnesses.
Miller was arrested twice in Hawaii this year, including at a karaoke bar for disorderly conduct and harassment.
Also that year, the parents of 18-year-old Toccata Iron Eyes, a Native American activist, filed an order of protection against Miller, accusing the actor of inappropriate behavior with her as a minor since age 12. Installed. Iron Eyes has disputed this. .
Miller is expected to star in “The Flash,” due in June 2023, after appearing as the Flash in several “Justice League” movies for Warner Bros. and DC Films. A representative for Warner Bros. did not immediately return a call. Email to request comment.
