Ezra Miller has been charged with felony burglary in the US state of Vermont.
The 29-year-old actor was charged over an alleged incident that occurred on May 1 in Stamford.
Miller has been accused of stealing bottles of liquor from an empty home while its residents were out.
According to Vermont State Police, officers were called to the home back in May after reports of a break in.
"The initial findings indicated that several bottles of alcohol were taken from within the residence while the homeowners were not present," the police statement said.
"As a result of an investigation that included surveillance videos and statements, probable cause was found to charge Ezra M. Miller with the offence of felony burglary into an unoccupied dwelling."
Police eventually located the Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them star on August 7 and issued them with a court summons over the felony burglary charge.
Miller will be expected to appear before the Vermont Superior Court on September 26 for arraignment.
Miller's arrest is the latest in a string of scandals that are likely causing headaches for Warner Bros. movie producers.
The studio has been slammed for keeping Miller on the bill of their upcoming 2023 comic book flick The Flash, after they was arrested on two separate occasions in Hawaii.
Earlier this year, Miller also had a restraining order taken out against them by a 12-year-old child and the child's mother.
The pair are reportedly neighbours of the actor. They allege Miller approached them screaming while under 'under the influence' and armed with a gun.
As a result, calls have grown for Miller to be replaced in the film, with some calling for Elliot Page to take up the role instead.
Kevin Smith was one of many pundits who lashed out at the studio over the loss of Batgirl, slamming studio big wigs on his YouTube chat show Hollywood Babble-On.
The Clerks star called it 'an incredibly bad look' for Warner Bros. to drop the film, which was set to boast a Latina actor in the lead role.
"I don’t give a s**t how bad the Batgirl movie is, nobody in that movie is complicated or has anything in their real life you have to market around," Smith told his chat show guest actor Ralph Garman.
"In The Flash movie, we all know there’s a big problem. Flash is the Reverse-Flash in real life."
