Beyond Meat’s COO Doug Ramsey was arrested over the weekend after a physical altercation in a parking lot following an Arkansas Razorbacks football game.
Ramsey, 53, was charged Saturday with uttering terrorism and third-degree assault, according to Washington County Jail (Ark.) booking records. He was released Sunday on $10,000 bond.
According to the campus police preliminary report obtained by local Arkansas TV station KNWA/Fox 24, a road rage altercation saw Ramsey smash through the rear windshield of another man’s Subaru in the parking lot after the vehicle hit the front tire of Ramsey’s car.

According to the preliminary report, once the Subaru owner got out of the vehicle, Ramsey punched him repeatedly and bit his nose, “tearing the flesh on the tip of his nose.” The man also claimed that Ramsey had threatened to kill him.
A responding police officer found “two men with bloody faces” in the garage just outside Razorback Stadium after Arkansas’ game against Missouri State. The occupants of both vehicles got out to help separate the two men.
