The BBC says it has suspended "Top Gear" host Jeremy Clarkson following a "fracas" with a producer.

The popular TV presenter was given a so-called final warning last year following a racism row, after he used an offensive word while filming the car show.

The BBC said Tuesday Clarkson has been suspended pending an investigation, but did not provide further details.

Clarkson has been in trouble before for behavior and remarks deemed offensive and provocative.

In 2011, the BBC apologized to Mexico after Clarkson and his co-hosts characterized Mexicans as lazy and oafish.

In October, Argentina's ambassador to Britain demanded an apology from the BBC after the "Top Gear" crew faced violent protests for allegedly referencing the country's 1982 war with Britain over the disputed Falkland Islands.
