A 29-year-old actor visiting from Vermont was arrested and charged for disorderly conduct and harassment on Monday, March 28 after an incident at a bar in Hilo.
The Hawai‘i Police Department stated that on Sunday 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 began 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). The bar owner asked Miller to calm down several times to no avail.
Miller is an actor, who starred as Kevin in the drama “We Need to Talk About Kevin” and co-starred in the film adaptation of “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” according to Miller’s film bio.
Miller was arrested and charged on both offenses and total bail was set at $500. He provided the bail and was released.
