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.

In old Hollywood when studio heads had a lot of power, there were rumors about a cover up. Clark Gable the first allegedly hit a man and killed him with his car. Drunk driving must be a family thing.

What would Clark Gable do if given one day t see his son this way?. Sure! back then they were all some kind of drunkards but, what they are like today!.These professionals in the acting world are falling apart and don't "Give a ^^*%$##@%" at all.There are a few exceptions to the rule. He did it once, he'll do it or something else. Six!, why not 12!.He's not a roll model but a crash model for ford.

I think Clark will walk out on this one. He certainly will leave in style.
