A 29-year-old actor who reportedly played the Flash in several movies was arrested for allegedly becoming unruly after apparently taking exception to other patrons of a bar near the Port of Hilo enjoying themselves.

Officers responded at about 11:30 p.m. Sunday to a report of a disorderly patron at Margarita Village on Silva Street.

Sunday night is karaoke night at the drinking establishment, and police reportedly determined through investigation that Miller became agitated when the event occurred.

According to police, Miller started yelling obscenities, and at one point grabbed the microphone from a 23-year-old woman who was singing. He allegedly later lunged at a 32-year-old man who was playing darts.

No injuries were reported by police.

It’s not the first time Miller’s name has allegedly been linked to a bizarre occurrence in a bar.

According to NBC, a video that appeared online in 2018, appeared to show a woman being choked in a bar in Reykjavik, Iceland.

The network said Variety reported the incident took place around 6 p.m. April 1, April Fool’s Day, at Prikid Kaffihus, a trendy bar in Iceland’s capital.

Despite confusion over whether the video was a joke, Miller’s name trended after the video was posted on Twitter.

NBC reported that Reykjavik police wouldn’t confirm Miller’s involvement and said that they weren’t summoned to the scene. Reykjavik police said they were unaware of any injuries, according to NBC.
