The son of Hollywood great Clark Gable was free on bail Wednesday following his arrest for allegedly driving under the influence and hitting several cars in Malibu, jail records show.
John Clark Gable, 52, was arrested about 3 p.m. Tuesday after he allegedly hit a vehicle near the Malibu Pier and eventually crashed his Ford Raptor into six parked cars in the 21300 block of Pacific Coast Highway, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said. There were no reported injuries.
A witness told KTLA-TV that Gable fell as he exited the vehicle for police.
"It took him a few seconds to get out of his truck," Geno Bahena told the television station. "And finally, when he got out of his truck -- I guess he was in shock or something -- he just fell on the floor."
Gable was arrested on suspicion of DUI and hit-and-run, authorities said, and was taken to an area hospital for a blood test. Jail records showed that he was held on $15,000 bail.
