FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — A top executive at food company Beyond Meat is facing charges after a fight outside a college football game.
Doug Ramsey was arrested Saturday after an incident outside a parking garage near Razorback Stadium after Arkansas’ victory over Missouri State, KNWA/KFTA reported.
According to a police report obtained by The Associated Press, Ramsey became angry when another driver inched in front of him in traffic and touched the front passenger wheel on Ramsey’s car. Police said that Ramsey got out of the car and punched through the rear windshield of the other driver’s car.
The alleged victim told police that when he got out of the car, Ramsey began punching him and then bit the top of his nose, ripping the flesh, the AP reported.
Ramsey was charged with terroristic threatening and third-degree battery, and was released from jail on Sunday, according to online records.
Both the victim and a witness told police that they reported hearing Ramsey “threaten to kill” the owner of the other car, KNWA/KFTA reported.
Ramsey is the chief operating officer of Beyond Meat, where he has worked since December, CNBC reported. Before joining the company, Ramsey worked for Tyson foods and McDonald’s.
Beyond Meat said Ramsey has been suspended, effective immediately, in a statement to CNBC.
