Miller became furious after being asked to leave a meeting at a Big Island home and threw a chair, hitting a woman in the forehead, according to a press release from the Hawaii Police Department.
The woman refused treatment because of a half-inch laceration on her forehead, police said.
Miller, described by police as a 29-year-old visitor from Vermont, was arrested during a traffic stop and released pending further investigation.
It’s unclear how Miller’s arrest affects an indictment scheduled for later Tuesday in the actor’s arrest last month at a Big Island karaoke bar. Miller has been charged with harassment and disorderly conduct after police said the actor grabbed a microphone from a singing woman and lunged at a man playing darts.
Miller was upset by a performance of Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s ballad “Shallow,” Hawaii Deputy Police Commissioner Kenneth Quiocho said.
Miller is also scheduled to be charged in a separate traffic case on Tuesday. Police were called to a fight in downtown Hilo last month in which Miller was uncooperative, refusing to leave the area and blocking a sidewalk, Quiocho said.
Miller’s attorney from Hawaii did not immediately return a message asking for comment on the recent arrest. Another attorney and a Miller representative also did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment.
Big Island Attorney Francis Alcain had requested that Tuesday’s court hearing, previously scheduled for next week, be brought forward. Alcain said in a court filing that his client “has various time-sensitive work commitments in California and/or New York” and requires an earlier hearing “to resolve this matter.”
The day after Miller was released on $500 bail for the karaoke bar arrest, a Big Island couple filed for a restraining order, claiming the actor barged into their bedroom and threatened them . A judge dismissed the case last week after a request from a lawyer for the couple.
William Dean, an attorney for the couple, declined to say why his clients no longer wanted to seek an injunction against Miller.
Miller also plays a key role in the third installment of the Harry Potter spinoff, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.
