Doug Ramsey, the Chief Operating Officer of Beyond Meat was arrested this past weekend for getting into a fight at a parking garage following an Arkansas Razorbacks football game, according to USA Today. Ramsey reportedly punched the back windshield of another man's vehicle in the parking garage after it made contact with the front tire of Ramsey's car. When the man got out of the vehicle, Ramsey reportedly punched him repeatedly and bit his nose, "ripping the flesh on the tip of the nose," according to the police report. Ramsey was charged with terroristic threatening and third-degree battery. He was released Sunday on $10,000 bond.
