Clark Gable's Grandson

Charged w/ Lasering

Clark Gable’s grandson Clark Gable III has been charged with three felony counts of pointing a laser at an aircraft, TMZ has learned -- after allegedly flashing a laser pointer at an LAPD chopper.

According to law enforcement, Gable was a passenger in a small red car driving in L.A. last month when he pointed a green laser at an LAPD helicopter -- flying above an event in Hollywood.

We're told the light obstructed the vision of two officers in the helicopter -- who were able to pinpoint the beam coming from the car Clark was riding in.

We're told Clark flashed the laser a total of three times at the chopper before cops pulled his car over -- and arrested him and the driver.

The driver has not been charged. If convicted on all counts, Clark faces three years in state prison.

Interesting, when this story broke locally in L.A. the day after it happened, someone (a sister or aunt?) was claiming he was pointing at something else and he pointed it at the helicopter by accident. Wonder how he managed to "accidentally" point it at them three times?

Good, throw the book at him. Not only endangering cop chopper, but anyone where the chopper falls on.

Talking about being so far removed from obscurity. His father was born after Clark died and this kid is living off his name because Hollywood peeps are probably impressed.

Waste of time & money - I would've figured the helicopter would be up there doing something more important than having the time to chase around a kid with a laser pointer. Yes, he's a douche, but what about all the actually criminals that waltzed on by while they were "taking down" this little punk?

Good! I hope they make an example out of this dumbazz. I remember his idiotic excuse of trying to point out the "Hollywood" sign to his friends and "accidently" hit the chopper. Whatever. Three years in jail sounds just about right. What was he thinking? It's not funny!
