Jeremy Clarkson Sued by "Top Gear" Producer He Punched

Took him long enough. Jeremy Clarkson took a swing at Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon earlier this year when the food provided at the end of a long day wasn't acceptable. The BBC found his punch unacceptable and fired Clarkson, thus ending Top Gear in its current incarnation. Now, Tymon has decided it's time to sue. Tymon is targeting both Clarkson and the BBC and suing them for racial discrimination and personal injury. According to DigitalTrends, the lawsuit is for roughly $152,353 in damages.

There was no sign of Clarkson who wasn't required to attend and likely had better things to do than listen to lawyers haggle details of the case. The BBC isn't saying anything either, other than the official statement that they'll be responding to the claim. Clarkson is also likely busy getting read for his new automotive show which is set to debut on Amazon Prime next year. They began filming last month and have released images showing a hybrid hypercar showdown with the Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1, and Porsche 918. This new venture will include both Richard Hammond and James May, so the old Top Gear might be gone, but the old crew is still together.
