Beyond Meat director charged with biting man’s nose in alleged traffic accident

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) – A vegan food product company executive has been charged with committing a crime and making a terrorist threat after a brawl outside a football game in which he is accused of biting a man’s nose, officials said.

Beyond Meat Chief Operations Officer Doug Ramsey has been charged with a roadside attack outside Saturday’s game between the Arkansas Razorbacks and Missouri State Bears in Fayetteville, Arkansas, according to the Fayetteville television channel, KNWA.

A police report says the 53-year-old Fayetteville man assaulted another man who was trying to crawl ahead of him in a parking garage lane and made contact with a wheel of Ramsey’s SUV. A police officer responding to the reported disturbance arrived and found “two men with bloodied faces,” the report said.

After speaking with Ramsey, the other man and a witness, the officer determined that Ramsey had gotten out of his SUV and had been “smashed through the rear window” of the other car. The driver of the other vehicle said he got out of his car and Ramsey “pulled it to him and started punching his body” and also “bite the owner’s nose, putting the flesh on the tip of the nose tore,” the officer reported.

That man and the witness also reported hearing Ramsey “threaten to kill the man.”

Beyond Meat has not responded to reports from the station and The Associated Press asking for comment.
