More legal issues in Vermont for ‘Flash’ star Ezra Miller

The actor who lives in Bennington County and portrays a fictional superhero has more real world legal issues. The Justice League might not be out to get Ezra Miller. However, the local justice system has some serious questions for the popular actor who calls Stamford, Vermont home.

NewsChannel 13 had previously told you about the burglary charge hanging over Miller’s head. Police say the 29-year old actor who plays the Flash in movies broke into a house in Stamford and stole several bottles of alcohol.

A Rolling Stone article says police are trying to locate a 25-year-old mother and her three young children, whom they believe had been living at Miller’s farm. Vermont State Police made repeated attempts over the weekend, according to Rolling Stone, to serve the mother a so-called emergency care order that demanded the children’s removal from her care and from the property, citing a fear for the children’s safety.

NewsChannel 13 has not independently confirmed that report.

A state police spokesperson tells NewsChannel 13 that the state Department of Children and Families oversees investigations of this nature. They’re typically confidential as a matter of law, the spokesperson says.

NewsChannel 13 reached out to that department, but has not heard back.

The Rolling Stone article quotes Miller as telling them the people police are looking for haven’t lived on the property for months.

That information correlates with stories from neighbors who say they used to see that woman and her children walking along the road, but haven’t seen them since May or June.

It’s not clear if Miller is still in town. Neighbors say they’ve seen the actor this week.

Miller purchased the property in 2017. The 100-acre remote hilltop property is the actor’s primary residence. According to town records, Miller has voted in this community.

This is the latest legal issue facing Miller. The actor was arrested twice earlier this year in Hawaii, including for disorderly conduct and harassment at a karaoke bar. Miller pleaded no contest in that case. The second incident was for second-degree assault.

Miller’s film credits include “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” and the “Fantastic Beasts” movies. The actor has appeared as the DC Comics character the Flash in several movies. Warner Bros. is planning to release “The Flash,” the character’s first solo film, in June 2023.
