Beyond Meat COO Doug Ramsey is accused of biting a man on the nose

A top executive at plant-based food company Beyond Meat has been arrested after allegedly biting a man’s nose during a fight outside Razorback Stadium in Arkansas on Saturday.

Chief Operating Officer Doug Ramsey is facing charges related to the unusual incident sparked by an altercation in a parking garage following the University of Arkansas football team’s win over Missouri State.

Ramsey, 53, was attempting to leave in his Bronco when a driver in a Subaru squeezed in front of him and made contact with his passenger tire, KNWA-TV reported, citing a preliminary police report.

He then allegedly jumped out of his car and “smashed through the Subaru’s rear window,” which police said caused the Subaru driver to get out of the car.

Ramsey is accused of hitting the Subaru driver and biting his nose so hard he ripped off “the flesh on top,” the TV station said, citing the report.

The Beyond Meat COO also threatened to kill the man, the police report said. When an officer arrived at the scene just after 10 p.m., he found “two men with bloody faces,” KNWA reported.

He is reportedly facing terrorism-related threats and third-degree assault charges.

Ramsey started Beyond Meat in December 2021, according to his LinkedIn profile. The California-based vegan company prides itself on its plant-based meats, claiming that turning away from animals “can positively impact the planet, the environment, the climate, and even ourselves.”

The company’s founder and CEO, Ethan Brown, said he “couldn’t be more excited” about signing Ramsey, according to a press release announcing the hiring last year.

Ramsey said he’s proud to join the company’s mission to “make delicious products that are healthier for our customers and more sustainable for our planet.”

CNBC has reached out to Ramsey and Beyond Meat and has received no comment.

Before joining Beyond Meat, Ramsey worked at Tyson Foods since 1992, according to his biography on Tyson’s website.

Tyson Foods referred to him as a “servant leader” who “is an advocate for team member safety.”
