Police are not investigating actor Ezra Miller about an incident in which the Flash star appears to grab a woman by the throat and slam her to the ground.
“No one was arrested or placed in custody regarding this,” Reykjavik Metropolitan Police spokesman Gunnar Rúnar Sveinbjörnsson told TheWrap. He also said police were not called to the scene, which took place outside the Prikið Kaffihús bar.
The video, which quickly went viral, shows Miller approaching a young woman, seemingly responding to a taunt, with, “Did you wanna fight? Is that the deal?” He then grabs her by the neck with his right hand and forces her to the ground as a bystander says, “Whoa! Bro, bro, bro.”
