Claiming more than $25k in medical costs, the grandson of Hollywood icon Clark Gable, Clark Gable III, is suing the man who allegedly stabbed him during a fight at a Calabasas party in 2009, reports the Daily Breeze.

TMZ reports that according to the lawsuit, the then 20-year-old Gable and his friends became involved in an altercation while leaving a party. While reportedly trying to help a friend who was being held with a knife to his throat, Gable was stabbed in the chest and suffered life-threatening wounds, blood loss, a punctured and collapsed lung and was admitted to intensive care at UCLA Medical Center first for a week, then for three weeks for extensive surgery.
