Jeremy Clarkson Reportedly Threw Punch at Producer, 'Top Gear' Season Postponed
Apparently, a fracas includes some sort of physical element in addition to a simple verbal confrontation. After the news earlier today that Jeremy Clarkson had been suspended from Top Gear, a report from Radio Times claims that Clarkson tried to punch a male producer on the show, and the remaining episodes of this season have been put on hold. The incident reportedly happened this past week, but nobody said anything to BBC until yesterday. With a long list of questionable decisions that have previously put him under scrutiny, Clarkson was immediately suspended this morning by BBC. The name of the person he attempted to punch has not been released, but as many as 10 people have been labeled producers in episodes this season, ranging from Film Producers to Series Producers to Assistant Producers to Executive Producers to just plain old Producers.

@MrJamesMay @RichardHammond I did some pretty good war documentaries. They could screen one of those. — Jeremy Clarkson (@JeremyClarkson) March 10, 2015
