Announcing his decision, Lord Hall said [Jeremy] Clarkson's dismissal was unavoidable after "a member of staff - who is a completely innocent party - took himself to Accident and Emergency after a physical altercation accompanied by sustained and prolonged verbal abuse of an extreme nature.That remains to be seen.

"For me a line has been crossed. There cannot be one rule for one and one rule for another dictated by either rank, or public relations and commercial considerations."
Also, the man, Oisin Tymon, whose face got in the way of Clarkson's fist, says;
I am well aware that many will be sorry his involvement in the show should end in this way.Including Mr. Tymon, we'd think.
