Sacked 'Top Gear' presenter Jeremy Clarkson could face police action over his unprovoked attack that left a colleague bleeding and cost him his job, bringing an end to the broadcaster's 37-year-long BBC career. BBC director general Tony Hall said with a heavy heart and "great regret" he had decided not to renew Clarkson's contract due to physical and prolonged verbal attack by the controversial star of the motoring show. He added that Clarkson had "crossed a line" which left him with no alternative.
