Clarke Gable’s son faces misdemeanour hit-and-run charge

The son of late movie star Clark Gable has been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) and fleeing the scene of an accident following his arrest in April (13). John Clark Gable allegedly crashed his car into another vehicle in Malibu, California and drove away, but was later arrested after ploughing into six parked motors.
The 52 year old has now been hit with misdemeanour charges in a case filed in Los Angeles on Monday (02Sep13).
Law enforcement sources tell that Gable was not drunk at the time of his arrest, but officials believe he was under the influence of prescription medication.
