Jeremy Clarkson was dropped by the BBC after the incident
North Yorkshire Police have said there is “no need for further action” against Jeremy Clarkson following an inquiry into the Top Gear “fracas”.
The force said although BBC TV producer Oisin Tymon did not wish for police action on his behalf, it still had to make “routine enquiries”.
It added that now all the interviews were complete, it “would not be pursuing this matter any further”.
Mr Tymon was punched by Clarkson at a hotel last month.
He suffered swelling and a split lip in the assault on 4 March and visited a hospital A&E department for his injuries.
Last week, the producer said he did not want to press charges against Clarkson.
The incident came to light after the presenter reported it himself to the BBC.
