During their arrest in Hawaii in March, Ezra Miller gave a stern warning to the police officers who brought them in for questioning. The entertainer, who identifies as a transgender nonbinary, insisted the officers be careful with the handcuffs while placing them in the patrol car, as they’re a musician who suffers from nerve damage. ‘The Flash’ star also cautioned the officers to use the correct pronouns during the drive to the police station, or they would press hate crime charges against them.
The insistence from Miller is shown in newly released police body cam footage from their March 28 arrest in Hilo, Hawaii. The body came footage starts with Miller in handcuffs complaining of pain in their wrists. The performer told the officers they need to be careful, as Miller’s a musician and any damage to the nerves in their wrists could be catastrophic to their music career.
