Miller is heard repeatedly asking to make a statement and pleading for their friends, who were watching nearby, to do the same.
A police officer is heard asking Miller to ‘turn around’ before saying ‘alright Ezra you’re being arrested for assault ok.’
A surprised Miller replies with a shocked ‘what’ as police ask them ‘not to make a scene.’
‘This is insane, why is it that anyone can call the police on me, can I file a statement?’ Miller is heard asking.
‘When we get back to the station,’ an arresting officer is heard replying on the bodycam footage.
‘Why is this happening? Ok but like, any time someone complains about me you guys track… like this isn’t fair what am I being charged with,’ continued Miller. ‘I’m trying to work with y’all.’
‘Do you have anything on you? Anything sharp on you? Anything in your pocket’ an officer is heard asking Miller who appears compliant in the video.
‘I’ve only ever cooperative with y’all, you know what I mean? You know me at this point, It feels unfair, like at this point, anyone can call the police.
‘I’m an actor that people are not fond of in this town right now. and It’s like I get arrested.’
Miller was heard pleading to tell their side of the story again, this time questioning whether their friends could also make a statement.
‘Can my friends make a statement? It would be useful if y’all could make a statement,’ they said yelling out to friends standing nearby the incident.
‘I really don’t mean to disrespect y’all in any way, I mean to be cooperative, I mean to be friendly.

‘At this point we’ve been through a couple of rounds, and it’s like, I like y’all please don’t presume that anyone who calls the police on me is correct.’
The arrest was Miller’s latest in a string of run-ins with law enforcement in Hawaii over a month or so period.

Over the course of several weeks in March, Miller was reportedly the subject of at least 10 police phone calls in Hilo, Hawaii.
Those events were relatively minor, with the actor accused of filming people at a gas station, refusing to leave the sidewalk outside a restaurant, and arguing with people.
Then, on March 28, Miller was arrested after becoming agitated by a couple singing Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s ‘Shallow’ at a karaoke bar as per the arrest report, Miller grabbed the microphone from the woman singing and later lunged at a man playing darts.
At a court hearing for the incident, they pleaded no contest to one count of disorderly conduct and paid a $500 fine.
Mere hours after they were arrested for disorderly conduct and harassment, Miller was released on bail and then allegedly stormed into a couple’s bedroom and threatened them.
Miller was previously charged with disorderly conduct and harassment at a karaoke bar following two arrests in Hawaii in March last year
Miller was fined $500 plus a $192 surcharge and placed on probation for a year after the March Hawaii arrest
Court documents revealed that the couple claimed that Miller burst into their bedroom and said, ‘I will burn your slut wife.’
Miller was also accused of stealing a passport and a wallet and the couple then filed a temporary restraining order against Miller.
The video of the second arrest heard Miller speaking to the multiple run-ins with the law and claiming that they were being falsely accused and extorted by people because of their fame.
‘The last guy was like give me 250k or I’ll call the cops on you and then I didn’t give him 250k and so he called the cops on me.
‘He made up a story, released a video to TMZ then he kept calling my lawyer about giving him 250K.
‘He threatened to release a video of a completely unrelated incident to TMZ. This has happened to me at other places, but at some point, usually, people can see what is happening.’
In January Miller narrowly avoided jail time after accepting a plea deal in connection with a break in at a southern Vermont home in May last year.
The 30-year-old ‘Flash’ actor agreed to a suspended sentence of 89 to 90 days in jail for the misdemeanor of ‘unlawful trespass,’ according to a plea deal filed with the Vermont Superior Court in Bennington in January.
Two other charges were dropped, including a felony burglary charge that could have carried a sentence of 25 years in prison.

Vermont Police charged Miller with felony burglary of an unoccupied dwelling May 1 2022 – with the non-binary actor claiming they were in the house to look for ingredients for a recipe for their mother
Vermont Police charged Miller with felony burglary of an unoccupied dwelling May 1, with the actor claiming they were in the house to look for ingredients for a recipe for their mother.
Miller was accused of taking bottles of gin, vodka and rum from their neighbor’s pantry on that day at around 5pm in the afternoon.
They told their attorney on Friday that they were grateful for the love and support they received.
‘Ezra Miller pled guilty this morning to a misdemeanor unlawful trespass in Vermont Superior Court and accepted the conditions imposed by the court,’ Miller’s attorney Lisa Shelkrot said on behalf of the embattled actor.
‘Ezra would like to thank the court and the community for their trust and patience throughout this process.
‘They would once again like to acknowledge the love and support they have received from their family and friends, who continue to be a vital presence in their ongoing mental health.’
The prosecutor said in court that the resolution protects his client’s privacy without having to go to trial.
It also ensures compliance with conditions that would protect the victim and allows the defendant to continue employment with mental health treatment.
She added that the conditions are ‘about mental health, substance-free living’ and no contact with the neighbor.
As part of the plea agreement, Miller also agreed not to consume alcohol if it interfered with their employment or interaction with others and the actor must continue with rehabilitation efforts around their mental health treatment.
The 30-year-old Flash actor had previously pleaded not guilty to charges of unlawful trespassing, two charges for burglary to an unoccupied dwelling and petit larceny for allegedly breaking into a Vermont home and stealing three bottles of alcohol.

Miller played The Flash in the DC Cinematic Universe – and was pulled into crisis meetings with Warner Bros over their behavior
Vermont State Police said in a statement at the time they were notified of ‘a burglary complaint at a residence on County Road in the town of Stamford, Vermont.
‘The initial findings indicated that several bottles of alcohol were taken from within the residence while the homeowners were not present,’ the statement continued.
‘As a result of an investigation that included surveillance videos and statements, probable cause was found to charge Ezra M. Miller with the offense of felony burglary in an unoccupied dwelling.’
They were arrested in August, and entered their now defunct not guilty plea in October when a judge ordered they stay away from neighbor Isaac Winokur – the house they stole the bottles from, as well as neighbor Aiden Early.
The actor spoke only to confirm that they understood the conditions of their bail.
It was just the actor’s most recent run-in with the law.
They had also been accused of grooming, after the parents of Tokota Iron Eyes, a Native American activist, 18, filed a protection order against the actor.
Her parents accused Miller of grooming their child and other inappropriate behavior with her as a minor from the age of 12 – which has been disputed by Tokota.

A Massachusetts mother was granted a temporary order of protection against Miller in June, on behalf of the woman’s 12-year-old child.
It was granted after the judge found the child faced ‘substantial likelihood of immediate danger of harassment.’
A mother-of-three and her young children have also moved into Miller’s Vermont farmhouse which is allegedly filled with guns and large quantities of marijuana.
The father of the children claims that the mother, 25, left their island home in Hawaii with Miller in April, and took the children without his consent.
Video from April, obtained by Rolling Stone, reportedly showed at least eight assault weapons, rifles, and handguns lying around the living room.
It’s also claimed they created a secret harem out of their Vermont ranch – a de facto convent – where the star is claimed to have asserted themselves as a Jesus figure over a group of women.
A video of Miller appearing to choke a woman at a bar in Reykjavik, Iceland, also surfaced in April 2020, but did not result in any charges.
In August Miller announced that they were seeking treatment for ‘complex mental health issues’, after Hollywood bosses were forced to reconsider their future in the DC’s cinematic universe.
A video surfaced on Twitter of Miller appearing to choke a woman at a bar in Reykjavik, Iceland, in April 2020 – but did not appear to result in any charges
They said in a statement: ‘Having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment.’
‘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.’
The actor stars in the ‘Flash’ movie, an insider telling The Wrap that early screenings had scored positive feedback.
