Ezra Miller is reported to have stolen bottles of alcohol from a private home in May 2022. The actor was identified by the police via home surveillance footage.
A representative for Miller explained that Miller believed that they had an open agreement with their neighbor to be able to freely borrow from each other. The actor sought to obtain rice wine for cooking.
Miller was scheduled to be arraigned in court on Sept. 26, which was pushed back to Oct. 17. At the time, Miller pleaded not guilty to the charges and appeared remotely in court via zoom.
On Jan. 12, the actor changed their plea to guilty for the misdemeanor of trespassing, leading to the burglary charge being dropped. This deal was to avoid jail time. On Jan. 13, the court approved the trespassing plea. The actor was sentenced to serve one year probation and pay a fine of $500 with a surcharge of $192. The actor was also given a suspended sentence of 89 to 90 days of jail if they violate the one-year probation. The burglary charge can also be refiled if Miller violates the terms of their probation.
The plea agreement carries 41 conditions, which includes no drinking if it interferes with their employment or behavior, random drug tests, no contact with their neighbor, and a commitment to continue to seek mental health treatment, as reported by News10 ABC.
Ezra Miller gave a statement to Variety back on Aug. 15 through a representative.
“I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment,” Miller said. “I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life.”
Miller stars in the upcoming DC film “The Flash,” arriving in theaters on June 16, 2023.
