 Jeremy Clarkson is finally putting the infamous "fracas" behind him as he settled a racial discrimination and personal injury lawsuit filed against him by former Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon.

The terms of the settlement are unknown but The Telegraph is reporting Clarkson has paid Tymon approximately $139,135 in damages. Clarkson also released a statement publicly apologizing for the incident which eventually lead to his firing.

In the statement, Clarkson said "I would like to say sorry, once again, to Oisin Tymon for the incident and its regrettable aftermath. I want to reiterate that none of this was in any way his fault. I would also like to make it clear that the abuse he has suffered since the incident is unwarranted and I am sorry too that he has had to go through that." Clarkson went on to say he is glad to put the issue to rest and wishes Tymon all the best in the future.

Tymon has reportedly returned to work for the BBC as a development executive.  While he has remained relatively quiet about the incident a BBC spokesman said "Oisin is a valued member of the BBC who behaved with huge integrity in dealing with the very difficult circumstances last year - a situation in which, as Tony Hall has stated, he was completely blameless."
