“The Flash” star Ezra Miller claimed, based on body-cam footage from their March 29 arrest in Hawaii, that they were assaulted and had it filmed “for NFT crypto art.”

Miller, whose preferred pronoun is they/them, was seen in body-cam footage wherein they got arrested at a karaoke bar in Hawaii in March, as per TMZ yesterday, May 11.

“I got assaulted and I started filming. Let me show you the video. I got assaulted in this bar, twice in a row. I film myself when I get assaulted for NFT crypto art,” the actor told law enforcers.

Miller then raised their voice as they asked for the policemen’s full names and badge numbers, but the authorities ignored the actor and went to the alleged victim who claimed he was playing darts when Miller started spitting on him.

Miller expressed shock when they were cuffed for disorderly conduct and harassment, and repeated the claim that they were the one who was assaulted.

The actor insisted they were complying, but police officers told them they were not. Police cited the alleged spitting incident as the reason Miller was being cuffed.

“The guy at that bar declared himself as a Nazi. I have it on film and he attacked me,” Miller alleged. The actor tried using their amendment rights to prevent getting arrested, then claimed that their genitals were touched by enforcers in the footage.

As per a police statement on Miller’s arrest, the actor “began yelling obscenities,” grabbed the microphone from a woman singing karaoke and “lunged” at a man playing darts.

Miller eventually settled a $500 (around P26,000) bail for the disorderly conduct and harassment charges against them.

Aside from the karaoke bar incident, Miller was also arrested for assault after throwing a chair at a woman, hitting her on the forehead. A temporary restraining order was also filed against Miller by a Hawaii couple after the actor allegedly burst into their bedroom and threatened them. The petition was eventually dropped and was dismissed by a judge per the couple’s request.

Miller is known for playing The Flash in the 2017 film “Justice League,” and is set to reprise the role in “The Flash” in June 2023.  The actor also stars in the recently released film “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.” Dana Cruz /ra
