The son of screen legend Clark Gable was arrested on charges of hitting several parked cars in Malibu, officials said Tuesday.

Clark Gable Jr. was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence and hit-and-run, said Sgt. John Skikas of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Deputies plan to present the case to prosecutors.

This is not the first legal trouble for the family.

In 2011, the grandson of Clark Gable was sentenced to 10 days in jail for pointing a laser gun at an LAPD helicopter.

Clark James Gable of Canoga Park pleaded guilty  to one felony count of discharging a laser at an occupied aircraft. Gable admitted that while he was riding in a car traveling down La Brea Avenue, he flashed a laser three times at an LAPD helicopter flying 800 feet above Hollywood Boulevard.
