Miller is starring in the upcoming “The Flash” movie, which is a DC Films production. DC Films Warner Bros. It is owned by Discovery, which is also the parent company of CNN.

Monday’s hearing comes after the Millers announced in August that they were seeking mental health treatment.

“Having recently experienced a period of intense 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 want to apologize to everyone I have offended and upset with my past behavior.”

The actor added, “I am committed to doing the work it takes to get back to a healthy, safe and productive phase of my life.”

Miller’s statement came after a series of legal problems.

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

Miller posted $500 bond and was released from custody, according to city police.

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

Later that day, Miller was arrested for second-degree assault after an incident at a private residence in Puna County, near the town of Pāhoa, according to the Hawaii Police Department. No charges have been filed with this incident.
