(TPM) – North Dakota Law Enforcement is having difficulty finding Ezra Miller after a tribal judge issued a protection order against the 33-year-old “Justice League” actor. Miller, according to Standing Rock Sioux court documents, is accused of emotionally manipulating, intimidating, and physically abusing an 18-year-old girl.
The order comes at the request of parents Chase Iron Eyes and Sarah Jumping Eagle for the protection of their son, Tokata Iron Eyes. Since their request was granted, they hope to separate their son from the influence of Miller.
“Tokata needs help without Ezra’s interference. Ezra is a 29-year-old person who needs to get help on their own path and not interfere with Tokata’s development as their own person,” Jumping Eagle told the Los Angeles Times.
Jumping Eagle says she’s also been the victim of an assault attempt by Miller.
The order should offer protection from any unsolicited contact on the part of Miller, who currently cannot be found.
The parents say they’ve tried to serve the actor as many as three times at his Vermont residence. Law enforcement can’t find the actor in North Dakota.
The family says Miller and Tokata met when Miller extended help to the Standing Sioux Tribe during a conversation over the “No Dakota Access Pipeline” movement. Miller grew attached to the girl, but soon developed what Totata’s parents identified as sinister behaviors towards him.
According to the family’s court filing, Miller introduced Tokata to forms of substance to hold sway over their son.
“Ezra uses violence, intimidation, threat of violence, fear, paranoia, delusions, and drugs to hold sway over a young adolescent Tokata,” they write.
Despite his parents’ attempts to shield him from what they see as an intrusive influence, that’s not the perspective Tokata shares. In a post to an Instagram account under his name, Tokata says he disavows his parent’s efforts to shield him from Miller, who he calls a supportive friend.
Tokata says he believes his parents are motivated to separate him from Miller because of “transphobic” leanings.
“My father and his allegations hold no weight and are frankly transphobic and based on the notion that I am somehow incapable of coherent thought or opposing opinions of my own kindred worrying about my well-being,” Tokata writes.
