This is not the first legal trouble for the family.
In 2011, the grandson of Clark Gable was sentenced to 10 days in jail for pointing a laser gun at an LAPD helicopter.
Clark James Gable of Canoga Park pleaded guilty to one felony count of discharging a laser at an occupied aircraft. Gable admitted that while he was riding in a car traveling down La Brea Avenue, he flashed a laser three times at an LAPD helicopter flying 800 feet above Hollywood Boulevard.
