Jeremy Clarkson was suspended by the BBC after a heated dispute with a producer of his show Top Gear, RadioTimes reports.

“Following a fracas with a BBC producer Jeremy Clarkson has been suspended pending an investigation,” the BBC said in a statement. “No one else has been suspended. Top Gear will not be broadcast this Sunday. The BBC will be making no further comment at this time.”

In addition to Sunday’s episode, the additional two remaining episodes in the season have also been postponed.

According to RadioTimes, the “fracas” involved Clarkson punching a male producer last week, but it was only reported on Monday.

This is not the first time Clarkson has caused issues on the set of Top Gear, the most popular car show in the world. He had been placed on “final warning” last year after he was allegedly caught on camera saying the N-word while reciting the nursery rhyme “Eeny, Meeny Miny Moe” during production. He previously got in trouble for using a racial slur towards Thai people on the series as well.

More recently, the Top Gear crew was forced to leave Argentina in October after violent protests erupted in response to the license plate number of Clarkson’s car, which they believed to be an offensive reference to the 1982 Falklands War between Argentina and the United Kingdom.
