The grandson Clark Gable was arrested on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood at 10:15pm yesterday when driving through Hollywood when police say he pointed a laser at a LAPD helicopter. Clark Gable III, 22, was charged with a felony and released from jail pending a court appearance on August 26 to answer the charges.
After his release from jail Gable told KCBS-TV in Los Angeles,“It was a misunderstanding, you know, people make mistakes and you learn from them,” Gable told the TV station. The laser pointer was “just a gift that I got and people make mistakes and that’s the bottom line. I’m going to learn from it and hopefully others will.”
In 2009, Gable was stabbed in the chest at a party in Calabasas.
