Vegan-Friendly Beyond Meat's COO Arrested For Allegedly Biting Man's Nose In Parking Lot Fight

Beyond Meat Inc BYND Chief Operating Officer Doug Ramsey allegedly bit a man on the nose and was subsequently arrested for terroristic threatening and third-degree battery.

What Happened: Ramsey, Age 53 years, was arrested this weekend after biting a man’s nose after a college football game, reported CNBC.

The incident took place after an altercation in a parking garage near the Razorback Stadium after a University of Arkansas football game, according to CNBC, which cited local media.

Local media cited a police report which alleged that Ramsey punched through the back windshield of a Subaru after it made contact with the front tire of his car. After the Subaru owner got out of his vehicle, Ramsey punched him and bit his nose “ripping the flesh on the tip of the nose.”
