Jeremy Clarkson, host of Great Britain’s world-famous car show “Top Gear,” has been suspended by the BBC “following a fracas” with a producer.

The BBC reports that Clarkson “had been suspended ‘pending an investigation,’” and that no one else had been suspended.

Top Gear will not broadcast on the BBC this Sunday, and the BBC has added that it “will be making no further comment at this time.”

Jeremy Clarkson, 54, has become a popular, albeit often controversial figure, across the motoring and non-motoring worlds, with 4.52 million followers on Twitter as of Tuesday, March 10, 2015.
