Jeremy Clarkson settles lawsuit with Top Gear producer he slugged
Clarkson again apologized to the producer, Oisin Tymon, according to a BBC report. "I would like to say sorry, once again, to Oisin Tymon for the incident and its regrettable aftermath," Clarkson said.
According to the BBC report, the network and Clarkson are each paying part of the settlement.
Clarkson struck Tymon on the patio of a hotel in North Yorkshire, shouting at the producer and threatening to fire him. Tymon didn't press charges, but the incident set in motion a series of events that caused the BBC to sack Clarkson, and his co-hosts James May and Richard Hammond did not return to the show.
Clarkson and crew were seen recently filming their new show for Amazon. Top Gear is relaunching with Chris Evans, Matt LeBlanc, and others as its new hosts.
