Miller had trouble with people singing Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s ballad “Shallow” at Margarita Village, a bar populated by mostly locals late Sunday in Hilo, a small Big Island town, the deputy police chief said of Hawaii, Kenneth Quiocho.
The song upset Miller, Quiocho said.
Miller, described in a news release as a 29-year-old visitor from Vermont, has been the source of police calls in Hilo 10 times since March 7, Quiocho said, adding it’s not clear how long Miller has been on the island.
There are “Manini” incidents such as filming people at a gas station, refusing to leave the sidewalk area of a restaurant, and fighting with people, Quiocho said, using a Hawaiian pidgin term that can mean small or small.
“He’s an actor, but he’s not that famous to me,” Quiocho said. “He’s not Ben Affleck, let’s put it that way.”
Police refer to Miller with the pronoun “he,” while Miller’s Instagram uses “they/they.”
Miller was arrested just after midnight Monday and charged with disorderly conduct and harassment. Miller was released after posting $500 bail.
Miller’s agent and attorneys did not immediately respond Tuesday for comment.
Miller, credited as the first LGBT person to have a starring role in a major superhero film, has hyper-verbal outcasts in big (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) and small (‘We Need to Talk About Kevin’ and ‘ The Perks of Being a Wallflower”).
Miller also has a key role in the upcoming Harry Potter universe film, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.
