Ezra Miller claims they were ‘assaulted by Nazi’ and accuses police of touching their penis
Ezra Miller has claimed they film themself “getting assaulted for NFT crypto art” in bodycam footage from their arrest in Hawaii.
The police footage, which was obtained by TMZ, showed officers initially speaking to a person who claimed that Miller spat in their face.
According to TMZ, the footage comes from Miller’s arrest in March for disorderly conduct and harassment. Miller was handcuffed after becoming “agitated” by karaoke singers.
In the video, Miller can be heard telling police that they were assaulted twice at the bar and started filming the alleged incidents. The actor offered to “show [police] the video”.
“I got assaulted in this bar, twice in a row,” Miller said. “I film myself when I get assaulted for NFT crypto art.”
The Flash star became agitated and was heard yelling for police to share their name and badge numbers. Miller then appeared taken aback when they were informed that they were being arrested for disorderly conduct.
“I’m being arrested for disorderly conduct?” Miller asked. “I was assaulted. You understand that, right?”
Ezra Miller claimed the “guy at the bar” who allegedly assaulted him “declared himself as a Nazi”, adding: “I have it on film, and he attacked me.”
The Justice League actor was also seen claiming their “ninth amendment rights” to “not be unlawfully persecuted for a crime of no designation”. They alleged that disorderly conduct “means something I am un-guilty of” before claiming their “fourth amendment rights to not be searched and seized with no probable cause”.
The 29-year-old actor also claimed in the footage that one of the officers searching them had “just touched my penis”.
“Hey, you just touched my penis. Please don’t do that,” Miller told officers. “I’m transgender, non-binary and I don’t want to be searched by a man!”
In a statement released by police at the time of Miller’s arrest, the Hawaii Police Department said the actor was arrested at the bar after they “began yelling obscenities” at patrons. Miller reportedly “grabbed the microphone from a 23-year-old woman singing karaoke” and “later lunged at a 32-year-old man playing darts”.
Police said the bar owner asked Miller to “calm down several times to no avail”.
Ezra Miller was arrested for a second time in April for second-degree assault after reportedly throwing a chair that struck a woman in the head.
Police said the actor became “irate” when asked to leave a gathering at a private residence, and they lobbed a chair at a woman causing a half-inch cut on her forehead.
