Ezra Miller has appeared in court and pleaded not guilty to stealing three bottles of alcohol from their neighbor’s property in Vermont.
The troubled Flash star appeared remotely at the hearing at Vermont Superior Court, and was told to stay away from neighbor Isaac Winokur.
Miller, 30, faces 26 years in prison if they are found guilty of the charges, as well as more than $2,000 in fines.
They are accused of taking a bottle of gin, vodka and rum from Winokur’s pantry on May 1 at around 5pm.
The casually-dress actor spoke only to confirm that they understood the conditions of their bail, including a ban on contacting Winokur and Aiden Early, another Vermont resident.
Vermont Police charged Miller with felony burglary of an unoccupied dwelling, with the actor claiming they were in the house to look for ingredients for a recipe for their mother.
They were also charged with petty larceny over the three stolen booze bottles, with the charges the latest in a series of legal woes for the actor.
The Fantastic Beasts star was hauled into a meeting with Warner Bros bosses as his ongoing public issues threaten to put the already delayed $250million movie in jeopardy.

Miller, a non-binary actor, played The Flash in the DC Cinematic Universe – and was pulled into crisis meetings with Warner Bros over their behavior
Miller and their agent Scott Metzger reportedly met with Warner Bros film chairs on August 24 to discuss how they could ‘stay on course’ for the release date of the Flash in June next year.
During the meeting they are also understood to have ‘reaffirmed their commitment to the movie’ as well as ‘apologize for bringing negative attention’ to the production and company.
Sources told The Hollywood Reporter that Miller only agreed to seek help after learning that there was a possibility that the film’s release would be cancelled.
In a statement Miller’s lawyer, Lisa Shelkrot said: ‘Ezra Miller this morning pled not guilty to one count of burglary and one count of petit larceny in Vermont Superior Court and accepted the court-imposed conditions of not contacting or entering the home of the inhabitants.
‘Ezra would 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.’
Miller has also been surrounded by allegations 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 their 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.

Miller was charged with felony burglary in Vermont, and earlier this year was charged with disorderly conduct and harassment at a karaoke bar following two arrests in Hawaii in March, on of which is pictured
Video from April, obtained by Rolling Stone, reportedly showed at least eight assault weapons, rifles, and handguns lying around the living room.
An expose also claimed that they ran a secret harem out of his Vermont ranch, a recent exposé on the actor’s arrests has shown – a de facto convent where the star asserted himself as a Jesus figure over a group of women.
Miller, who uses they/them pronouns, was arrested twice in Hawaii in March and charged with disorderly conduct and second-degree assault.
They were accused of shouting and swearing at customers as they sang karaoke at a bar in Hilo, as well as grabbing a microphone from a 23-year-old woman.
At a court hearing for the incident, they pleaded no contest to one count of disorderly conduct and paid a $500 fine.
A married couple took out a restraining order against them, after Miller burst into their bedroom and threatened to kill them, then left stealing her passport and his wallet.
In April the star was accused of throwing a chair at a 26-year-old woman, hitting her at a private party in Pahoa

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.
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.’
