The Chief Operating Officer of Beyond Meat, a plant-based meat company, was arrested in Arkansas on Saturday after allegedly getting into an altercation with a man after a college football game, with him reportedly biting off a portion of the nose of the victim in the midst of the fight.

Doug Ramsey, a 53-year-old man from Fayetteville, was at the parking garage of Razorback Stadium in Arkansas, reportedly celebrating with the crowd following the victory of the University of Arkansas against Missouri State in that game, according to KTLA.

However, as Ramsey was attempting to leave the stadium’s parking garage, he allegedly got into an altercation with the driver of a Subaru, who had “inched his way” to Ramsey’s car and reportedly made contact with the vehicle's front tire on the passenger side, KNWA reported.

In response to this, Ramsey reportedly stepped out of his vehicle and, in a moment of road rage, allegedly “punched through the back windshield of the Subaru,” which got the owner of the Subaru to go out of their car as well.

Ramsey was then described to have “pulled him in close and started punching his body,” beating him up and at some allegedly point biting the nose of the Subaru driver and “ripping the flesh on the tip of the nose.” He was also reportedly heard to have threatened to kill the Subaru driver during this exchange.

Officers who responded to the incident arrested Ramsey and booked him into Washington County jail, where he appears to be facing charges of terroristic threatening and third-degree battery. It is unclear what the condition of Ramsey’s victim currently is.

Ramsey is the COO of Beyond Meat, a plant-based food company based in El Segundo, California. Before that, Ramsey was an executive for Tyson Foods, working for the company since 1992 and being named “president of global McDonald’s business” in 2019. He had left the company months before being declared COO of Beyond Meat in December 2021.
