The grandson of one of the legendary actors of Hollywood’s Golden Era has been sentenced to jail for flashing a laser pointer at a police helicopter, TMZ.com reports.
Clark Gable III, the 23-year-old grandson of the film legend who played Rhett Butler in “Gone With the Wind,” was sentenced to 10 days in jail, the story reports.
Gable pleaded guilty to a felony count of discharging a laser at an occupied aircraft in connection with an incident last summer. He also received three years’ probation.
Gable’s grandfather, Clark Gable, was one of the greatest film icons of the 1930s, winning an Oscar for “It Happened One Night” (1934) along with nominations for “Gone With the Wind” (1939) and “Mutiny on the Bounty” (1935).
