Twilight Werewolf Arrested in Arizona
08.10.11 by Mandy
Kiowa Gordon, who plays werewolf Embry Call in the Twilight movies, was arrested in Tempe, Arizona, early Monday morning. The 21-year-old actor was taken in to custody because of an active warrant from 2010. The teen wolf had failed to make a court appearance in Mesa, AZ, in September 2010 related to a DUI arrest, and had also missed a hearing in Scottsdale after having plead guilty to drug paraphernalia possession and giving alcohol to a minor. It sounds like he should have stuck to jumping off cliffs in Forks, Washington.
The Arizona actor became a part of the New Moon cast thanks to author Stephenie Meyer. The actor is a Mormon and a member of the same church ward as the writer, who suggested he join the Quileute wolf pack. The actor will reprise his role as Embry in the upcoming Breaking Dawn Part 1.
