(CNN) — “The Flash” actor Ezra Miller pleaded not guilty on Monday to burglary charges in relation to an alleged Vermont home invasion in which they are accused of stealing alcohol, according to Bennington Criminal Court Operations Manager Wendy Dickie.

Miller, who is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns, appeared virtually in the hearing with their attorney, Lisa Shelkrot. They face one felony charge of burglary into an occupied dwelling and one misdemeanor charge of petty larceny, Dickie said.

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

Miller is accused of going into 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, court documents state.

Miller is starring in an upcoming “The Flash” film, which is a DC Films production. DC Films is owned by Warner Bros. Discovery, which is also CNN’s parent company.

Monday’s arraignment comes after Miller announced they were seeking mental health treatment in August.

Ezra Miller seeks treatment for ‘mental health issues’

“Having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment,” Miller said in a statement at the time. “I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior.”

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

Miller’s statement followed a string of legal issues.

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 paid $500 bail and was released from custody, according to local police.

On April 19, the actor pleaded no contest and was fined $500 for the disorderly conduct charge, a court record shows, 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 the district of Puna, near the town of Pāhoa, according to the Hawaii Police Department. There have not been charges filed related to that incident.
