A vegan food company executive has been charged with third degree battery and making a terroristic threat after allegedly biting a man’s nose.

Beyond Meat chief operations officer Doug Ramsey was reportedly involved in an altercation outside an American football game in Arkansas on Saturday, according to local television station KNWA.

The 53-year-old is accused of attacking another man after his car allegedly made contact with Ramsey’s in a parking garage queue following the Arkansas Razorbacks v Missouri State Bears clash in Fayetteville.

Ramsey’s alleged victim had tried to inch in front of him and made contact with a wheel on Ramsey’s SUV, according to a police report.

Ramsey, who worked for Tyson Foods and McDonald’s before joining Beyond Meat in December last year, is reported to have got out of his vehicle and “punched back through the windshield of the other car” before “pulling him in close and punching his body”.

The Washington County police report also claims Ramsey, from Fayetteville, “bit the owner’s nose ripping the flesh on the tip of the nose” and “threatened to kill” him.

He has been charged with third degree battery and terroristic threatening, with a total bond of $11,085 (£9,700).

He was released on Sunday.

Beyond Meat has not responded to requests for comment.
