Chief Operating Officer of Beyond Meat on Saturday after the Arkansas Razorbacks football game against Missouri State in Fayetteville, Arkansas, according to KNWA.
Doug Ramsey, Beyond Meat COO and Fayetteville native, was arrested for basically biting the flesh off somebody’s nose in a parking garage after the game during an altercation.
And look, I can understand the frustration that comes with trying to leave a football game, ESPECIALLY if you’re in a parking garage trying to leave.
First off, everybody else is trying to high tail it outta there too, so you’re sitting in your car in the parking spot for an hour until somebody finally is friendly enough to let you back out, and then you have to wait in the parking garage traffic for another hour as cars honk their horns, and next thing you know it takes what should’ve been only an hour drive back home three hours.
But coming off a 38-27 victory over Missouri State, you’d think this Razorback would be in better spirits. Then again, all that pent up frustration over trying to sell people some garbage fake meat and watching your stock prices plummet 73% this year… no wonder this dude is walking around like a caged lion, looking to rip somebody’s face off.
Police were dispatched just after 10 PM, for a “disturbance that had previously occurred in the Stadium Drive Parking Garage.”
The responding officer found Ramsey and the victim with blood on their faces.
According to both parties, Ramsey was in the traffic lane attempting to leave, when a Subaru made its way in front of Ramsey’s Bronco, making contact with the front passenger’s side tire.
Ramsey then got out and allegedly punched through the back windshield of the Subaru.
The owner of the Subaru then got out of the car, and that’s when Ramsey pulled him close and started punching him, while also biting his nose to the point where the flesh was ripped off.
The victim and witness both added that Ramsey threatened to kill the victim.
Ramsey was arrested at 10:27 PM and booked into Washington County Jail. He was later charged with terroristic threatening and third-degree battery by law enforcement.
Ramsey was named COO of Beyond Meat in December 2021, and had been a member of Tyson Foods’ poultry since 1992 and was named president of global McDonald’s business in 2019.
He has a court appearance at Fayetteville District Court set for October 19th.
