The grandson of actor Clark Gable has been sentenced to spend 10 days in jail for pointing a laser at an occupied aircraft — an LAPD helicopter. Clark pled guilty last month to one felony count of discharge of a laser at an occupied aircraft.

23-year-old Clark James Gable was originally charged with three felony counts. He was a passenger in a car traveling down La Brea Avenue when he allegedly pointed a green laser at an LAPD helicopter that was flying above an event on Hollywood Boulevard. The incident occurred shortly after 10 p.m. on July 28.

The laser light momentarily obstructed the vision of the two officers in the helicopter. They later pinpointed the laser beam coming from a small red car, authorities said.

The laser light allegedly flashed two more times at the helicopter before officers on the ground stopped the car at Franklin and Highland and arrested the driver and Gable.

Prosecutors declined to file on the driver, Maximilian Anderson, due to insufficient evidence that he was aware the laser was being pointed at the helicopter.

Gable’s family told our friends at TMZ that he was trying to point the laser at the famous sign, but apparently his aim ain’t so good.

    What if he was just aiming it upward? I mean let’s be honest, those things fly around WeHo like it’s friggin’ Alcatraz. I’m sitting here in my WeHo apartment and I’ve heard a police copter fly by at least 5 times in the past 10 minutes.
