Grandson of Clark Gable Gets 10 Days for Laser Pointing

Published

on

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.

LOS ANGELES — A Lakewood man was charged Jan 14 with six felony counts, including animal cruelty, in connection with the fatal shooting of a dog, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Shane Michael Dubyak faces one count each of cruelty to an animal; fleeing a pursuing peace officer’s motor vehicle while driving recklessly; possession of a controlled substance with a firearm, heroin and a revolver; and unlawful possession of ammunition as well as two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon.

The case includes an allegation that Dubyak used a revolver in the commission of animal cruelty.

Arraignment is scheduled Jan 14 in Department 5 of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Downey Branch.

On Jan. 5, the defendant reportedly shot a 15-year-old terrier named Artie that was left under his care, in the 16400 block of Phoebe Avenue in La Mirada, prosecutors said. On Jan. 10, police spotted Dubyak and he fled when they attempted to detain him, prosecutors added.

According to ABC “Detectives launched an investigation after the incident was captured on surveillance video, showing someone shooting the dog Sunday before driving off.”

Prosecutors are requesting the defendant be held with no bail for violation of probation terms in which Dubyak pleaded no contest to one felony count of identity theft with a prior.

If convicted as charged on the current case, the defendant faces a possible maximum sentence of more than 14 years in state prison.

The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Norwalk Station.
