Clark Gable's Grandson

10 DAYS IN JAIL

for Lasering Police Chopper

1/12/2012 11:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Clark Gable III
Clark Gable's grandson Clark Gable III was just sentenced to 10 days in jail for flashing a laser pointer at an LAPD chopper.

23-year-old Clark pled guilty last month to one felony count of discharge of a laser at an occupied aircraft -- after pointing the thing at an LAPD helicopter, flying over some event in Hollywood last summer.

Cops in the aircraft were somehow able to pinpoint the laser coming from the small red car Gable was riding in. The car was quickly pulled over and Gable was arrested.

In addition to the jail time, Gable was also sentenced to 3 years probation.

Another condition of his probation was to have his eyebrows threaded before they took over Los Angeles.

Wow...Bet they felt obligated to give him some jail time. A regular citizen would have been locked up a WHOLE lot longer.

If his grandfather were alive, he would be horribly ashamed of him. His grandfather is a Hollywood legend. I don't understand why people who have legacies like that want to purposely destroy them. Truly sad and pathetic.

Isn't it time for him to grow up? This is something a 10 year-old would think of doing. 23? Really?!

Damn, he looks like his grandfather too! The man would kick his ass if he were alive to see what this douche nozzle's doing to the family name. But his father (Clark's son) is just as bad....that's where CGIII gets it from.

So Gary Dourdan smashes 2 cars, gets caught with some oxycontin and gets a $100 fine. Gables grandson gets 10 days in the clink for shining a laser?? What is with thes prosecutors in L.A. What a joke. I guess being the grandson of a celebrity does not merit the 'celebrity power' of the lousy prosecutor. I guess he is no Lindsay Lohan.

They say "old money" is gone in two generations. In this case, sounds about right. Idiot.

I love lasers and enjoy them! This is an OK sentence time; it could have been a bit more I would think? it may teach irresponsible laser users and hobby killers to become responsible, well done LAPD.
