LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The grandson of "Gone with the Wind" star Clark Gable was sentenced to 10 days in jail on Thursday for pointing a laser at a police helicopter.

Clark James Gable, 23, pleaded guilty last month to a count of discharge of a laser at an occupied aircraft. Gable pointed a green laser at a helicopter flying over Hollywood in July 2011, police said.

Authorities say lasers pointed at aircraft can blind the pilot and cause a crash.
