Recent reports confirmed that the son of the Hollywood legend William Clark Gable, John Clark, was arrested for suspicion of drunk driving after he allegedly being involved in multiple car crash in Malibu.

Media sources say that Gable was arrested on last April 2 following a rear-end crash on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. Gable allegedly fled the accident scene and continued to drive until he struck six parked cars. The incident did not stop there as he continued driving. He only came to a stop when his vehicle struck the garage of a home nearby the area.

So far, no information has been released regarding the occupants of the involved vehicles. Also, there were no reported injuries associated with the incident. Nevertheless, the 52-year-old Gable was taken into police custody on suspicion of both driving under the influence (DUI) and hit-and-run before he was transported to the Sheriff’s station.

Subsequently, reports claimed that authorities contend that alcohol and drugs were seen as factors to the incident.

According to certain news articles, John Clark inherited his famous father’s good looks and interest in acting. In fact, he is reportedly filming a movie entitled “Sunset at Dawn,” which is expected to be released by 2014. 

“You will find peace not by trying to escape your problems, but by confronting them courageously,” quoted by a Los Angeles auto accident attorney. If only Gable stopped right after the first car crash incident, the he would have avoided the subsequent mishaps as well as the hit-and-run charges, said by the lawyer herein.
