The son of Hollywood legend Clark Gable claims he was not drinking alcohol before the multi-car wreck that led to his DUI arrest -- but does admit he went unconscious ... and says he has a history of brain aneurysms. 

TMZ broke the story ... John Clark Gable was busted Tuesday in Malibu after allegedly smashing into 6 parked cars on Pacific Coast Highway.

Gable tells us he lost consciousness ... and says the last thing he remembers is getting cut off by a van, and when he woke up he had hit a phone pole.

Gable claims he "absolutely was not drinking" ... and says the only medication he's currently taking is for a minor leg injury from mountain biking.

However, Gable says he had 2 small brain aneurysms --weak bulging spots on the wall of an artery -- back in 2006 and another in 2009.

Brain aneurysms can be fatal, but Gable says he had corrective surgery both times.

Gable says he's going to a doctor to get his head checked out ASAP -- but stresses he doesn't know yet if an aneurysm was behind yesterday's accident.

Gable's blood alcohol level was tested after the crash -- but the results have not been released.

I believe his theory about the aneurysms. I know that you can black out from them. And since John Clark has had a history of them, that would seem like the likely culprit. Didn't John's dad, Clark, die from a brain hemorrhage? Bye the way, that's a cool cowboy hat John Clark is wearing. I bet he wears some pretty fine boots too.

This never was investigated. He almost killed several people that day and it has been swept under the rug by police and money. No witnesses called back, no charges laid, no consequence...and this happens a lot with this guy.

The locals know better what you can get away with.

Money can buy you freedom in the good old USA.
