“The Flash” star Ezra Miller pleaded not guilty Monday to charges that they broke into a neighbor’s home and stole booze — but could face 26 years behind bars if convicted.

The troubled 30-year-old actor — who uses they/them pronouns — made a court appearance on felony burglary charges by video link from Burlington, Vermont for the alleged May 1 heist during which cops said they made off with bottles of gin, vodka and rum, Variety reported.

The Stamford, Vermont, incident adds to a slew of legal issues plaguing Miller in recent months, including a pair of busts in Hawaii on harassment, assault and disorderly conduct charges in March and April.

Miller pleaded no contest to the assault charge and paid a $500 fine, while the harassment charge was later dismissed.

In June, Rolling Stone reported that Miller had been living with three young children and their 25-year-old mother in a drug and gun-filled Vermont farm.

Also in June, the mother of an 18-year-old woman accused the actor of grooming her daughter in a cult-like setting in California.

After their arrest in the Vermont burglary in August, Miller issued a statement conceding they were in a state of “intense crisis” and undergoing treatment.

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