MALIBU ( —Legendary actor Clark Gable’s son was arrested Tuesday afternoon on suspicion of drunken driving and hit-and-run after he allegedly caused two crashes in Malibu.

John Clark Gable, 52, reportedly hit a car near the Malibu Pier and left the scene.

A short time later, he crashed his car into six parked vehicles east of the pier on Pacific Coast Highway, according to Sgt. John Skikas of the sheriff’s Malibu-Lost Hills station.

Skikas said Gable was taken to the hospital for a “blood draw…and then he will be booked at the Malibu-Lost Hills station.”
