This story is beyond strange. An executive at Beyond Meat was accused of biting a man’s nose outside a football game between the Arkansas Razorbacks and Missouri State Bears in Fayetteville, Arkansas, last Saturday.
Doug Ramsey, 52, is the chief operating officer of the vegan meat company. According to a police report, the problems started in a parking garage after the game when a man driving a Subaru tried to crawl in front of Ramsey’s Ford Bronco. The driver reportedly crashed into the front wheel of Ramsey’s vehicle, enraging the Beyond Meat manager.
Police said Ramsey jumped out of his SUV and “smashed through the rear window” of the Subaru. When the driver got out of his car to see what was happening, “Ramsey pulled him towards him and started beating his body”. Police report that he also “bite the owner’s nose and tore the flesh on the tip of the nose”.
When police arrived on the scene, they reported finding “two men with bloodied faces.”
The COO of Beyond Meat has been arrested for biting a man’s nose. Proving once again that you just can’t beat the real thing.
