EXCLUSIVE

0402-john-clark-gable-gettyJohn Clark Gable -- son of Hollywood legend Clark Gable -- was arrested for DUI in Malibu today after allegedly crashing into 6 parked cars after fleeing the scene of another accident ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We've learned ... 52-year-old Gable is suspected of initially rear-ending another car on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. But after the crash, we're told he's suspected of fleeing the scene in his car ... and smashing into 6 parked cars along the way.

TMZ has learned ... Gable -- who's an actor -- was taken into custody moments ago on suspicion of DUI and hit-and-run ... and he's currently on his way to the Sheriff's station.

Law enforcement sources tell us, "It appears alcohol and/or drugs were involved."

FYI -- in his younger days, Gable raced trucks -- and apparently he was more successful back then than he was today.

If he's like LiLo, this will mean nothing. He'll be out and driving around again in a few hours and never serve any time.

There will never be another Clark Gable, Errol Flynn, Charlton Heston, John Wayne etc,!
By the way, actress Loretta Young,had a daughter with Clark Gable, but kept it a secret for many years.
So this guy has a 1/2 sister.
How does this guy make a living or get any income?

Does his son, Clark the 3rd, still host 'Cheaters'? And host it very poorly, BTW. He's a vegetable in front of the camera.

Clark must have left this guy a ton of money, because from what I can see of his acting credits, he hasn't done much else.

Sad. Thank God, no one was killed. Selfish act, he needs help. Sidebar: Clark's grandson hosts Cheaters now. Lol, family downslide.

OK Drunky, you know and everyone knows that you do not give a rat's furry ass for anyone in your path of destruction. Drive off a cliff and do the world a favor. I personally have ZERO tolerance for idiots who drink and drive, especially over and over. You were caught twice because of accidents, how many times did you drive drunk and got home safely somehow? And just because your grandfather was an actor doesn't mean you are.

Dear Mr Gable, You are a disgrace and embarrassment to the name Gable. For that matter, you are a disgrace to the entire human race. Another silver spoon baby that thinks he has "earned" the right
to act like a douche and put other people at risk.
Please go away, far, far, far away.

Just another guy who lives off his old wealthy fathers money...I am quite sure this guy has never worked a day in his life. They all become drunks or take drugs and blow the families money. The world is full of these lazy people who inherited their wealth from family members.
