CHICAGO – While the next “Twilight” film is set to be released this coming November, one cast member is happy his release was much sooner. Wolfpack member and, presumably, loyal ‘Team Jacob’ supporter Kiowa Gordon, who plays the character of Embry Call, was released from jail Wednesday after being arrested earlier this week.

Gordon was taken to the pound early Monday morning in Tempe, Arizona after police found an outstanding warrant for Gordon’s arrest during a “routine registration check.” The warrant stemmed from missing a court date for a prior arrest in 2010.

Kiowa Gordon was a passenger in a vehicle registered to him when he was stopped by the Tempe Police Department. During a registration check on that vehicle, it showed the registered owner (Kiowa Gordon) had two outstanding misdemeanor warrants for his arrest,” Tempe police reported in a statement on Monday, as reported by Ace Showbiz.

Gordon was arrested a year ago for possession of a marijuana pipe and the popular caffeinated alcoholic beverage Four Loko, which has been banned in several states. Gordon was underage at the time of the original arrest.

Gordon was let out of his cage after he paid the $1,000 bail at the Maricopa County Jail on Wednesday.

While the second arrest and criminal proceedings could mar the “Twilight” name for a few weeks, even bad publicity is still publicity for the popular teen fantasy movies. “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn- Part 1” hits theaters this coming November 18th, 2011.

“Twilight,” which starred Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Ashley Greene and Taylor Lautner grossed $178 million domestically. “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” was an even bigger hit, grossing an amazing $296 million domestically and “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” topped even that with $301 million stateside and nearly $700 million worldwide.
