Jeremy Clarkson could be charged for assault on producer

Jeremy Clarkson could face criminal charges over an assault on a Top Gear producer.

Clarkson faces arrest by police after the BBC sacked him for punching a Top Gear producer in the face with such force he had to go to A&E.

The corporation’s internal investigation concluded the star launched an “unprovoked” 30-second physical attack on Oisin Tymon because he was offered a plate of cold cuts instead of steak and chips. 

North Yorkshire Police said it had asked the BBC for its report into the “fracas” in a luxury hotel in the county and said action will be taken against Clarkson “where necessary.”

Clarkson was subsequently suspended from the BBC show, and has since been sacked, with Lord Hall, the Director General of the BBC, saying: “It is with great regret that I have told Jeremy Clarkson that the BBC will not be renewing his contract. It is not a decision I have taken lightly. For me a line has been crossed.”
