“The Flash” actor Ezra Miller pleaded not guilty Monday to theft charges related to a Vermont home invasion, according to Pennington Criminal Court Operations Manager Wendy Dickey.

Miller, who is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns, appeared virtually at the hearing with their attorney, Lisa Shellgrot. They face one count of burglary of an occupied dwelling and one misdemeanor count of petit larceny, Dickey said.

Below is the full statement from Ezra Miller’s attorney, Lisa Shellgrod:

“Ezra would like to acknowledge the love and support they have received from their family and friends, who continue to be vital in their mental health,” Shellgrod said in a statement to CNN.

Miller is accused of going to a neighbor’s home in Stamford, Vermont, without permission on May 1 and stealing bottles of alcohol while the neighbor was not home, a police affidavit states.

The actor is next scheduled to appear in court on January 13, according to court documents.

Miller will star in DC Films’ upcoming “The Flash.” DC Films is owned by Warner Bros. Discovery, the parent company of CNN.

Monday’s hearing followed Miller’s announcement in August that they were seeking psychiatric treatment.

“During a recent crisis, I now understand that I am suffering from complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment,” Miller said in a statement at the time. “I would like to apologize to everyone for causing concern and upset by my past behaviour.”

The actor added: “I am committed to doing the work necessary to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life.”

Miller’s statement followed a string of legal troubles.

In March, Miller was arrested in Hilo, Hawaii, and charged with disorderly conduct and harassment after an incident at a bar, according to the Hawaii County Police Department.

Miller was released from custody after posting $500 bail, local police said.

On April 19, the actor pleaded no contest and was fined $500 for disorderly conduct, court records show, and the harassment charge was dismissed.

Earlier that same day, Miller was arrested for second-degree assault following an incident at a private residence in Puna County near Pahoa, according to the Hawaii Police Department. No charges have been filed in connection with the incident.
