This is the second time in less than a month that Miller has been arrested for assault, and the second time in Hawaii no less. Previously, at the end of March, Miller assaulted a man and woman at a karaoke bar who were playing darts and singing, respectively. These individuals filed a petition for a temporary restraining order against Miller, though the petition has since been dropped for unspecified reasons.
After the first arrest, Warner Bros and DC executives announced that any projects involving Miller had been temporarily paused. Miller is currently slated to star in The Flash next year, though these incidents may throw that role into question.
