Presenter Jeremy Clarkson allegedly aimed a punch at a producer last week, but the incident that resulted in his suspension Tuesday was only reported to the BBC Monday. And the rest of the current series is apparently on hold, as well.
According to Radio Times, Clarkson tried to punch a man last week. There is no word yet to the identity of the man, or his role with the network or Top Gear, other than his “producer” title. Radio Times says BBC uses the “producer” label for a wide-ranging list of roles.
Clarkson was suspended Tuesday following what the BBC called a “fracas,” and Sunday’s episode was postponed.
The publication is also reporting two additional episodes have been put on hold by BBC until the investigation into Clarkson’s incident is concluded, which means the rest of Series 22 is currently on hiatus.
