Jeremy Clarkson will not be facing assault charges after attacking Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon at a North Yorkshire hotel following a day of filming.

Tymon opted to not file charges, although local police had requested a copy of the BBC's report into the "unprovoked physical and verbal attack" so that it could respond "where necessary," Radio Times reports.

"Mr. Tymon has informed the police that he doesn't want to press charges," Attorney Paul Daniels said in a statement obtained by RT. "The events of the last few weeks have been extremely unpleasant for everyone involved. The matter has taken a great toll on Oisin, his family and his friends."

"Quite simply, Mr. Tymon just wishes to return now to the job at the BBC he loves, as soon as possible. Further, the BBC have, in his view, taken action with a view to addressing the issues at hand."

This statement is the first time we've heard from Tymon since the incident that led to Clarkson's suspension and then firing. Yesterday, media confronted the former presenter while he was cycling through London.

"I wish people would leave Ois alone, because none of this is his fault," the 54-year-old said.

"Mr. Tymon agrees with the BBC's stated view that all parties should now be allowed to move on, so far as possible," Daniels said.
