    Kiowa Gordon can go back to appearing at Team Jacob pack meetings conventions.

    The Twilight actor, best known for playing shapeshifting werewolf Embry Call in the big-screen fantasy franchise, has been released from a Maricopa County, Ariz., jail where he's been holed up since Monday following his arrest for failing to show up for hearings in Mesa and Scottsdale courts.

    Per the Arizona Republic, the 21-year-old Gordon posted the $1,000 bail himself.

    Tempe's Finest were the first to take Gordon into custody after stopping a car in which he was a passenger on the morning of Aug. 8. When it was discovered that he owned the vehicle, a subsequent search of the thesp's registration revealed that he was wanted in both municipalities.

    In Mesa, Gordon had failed to appear in court on Feb. 25 to answer a charge of driving under the influence of drugs, which was filed against the actor back in September. In Scottsdale, he was M.I.A. for a proceeding resulting from a January 2010 arrest in which he was riding in a vehicle that was pulled over for reckless driving in north Scottsdale. Police later found a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, though the driver admitted the pot was his.

    Accordingly, Tempe PD subsequently handed off Gordon to Mesa authorities so he could deal with the warrants, but he did not face additional charges.

    A rep for Gordon was unavailable for comment.
