The COO for Beyond Meat Was Arrested for Biting a Man's Nose
Doug Ramsey was charged with terroristic threatening and third-degree battery after an alleged road rage incident.
Doug Ramsey, 52, is the chief operating officer of the vegan meat company. According to a police report, the trouble started after the game in a parking garage when a man driving a Subaru tried to inch in front of Ramsey's Ford Bronco. The driver allegedly bumped into the front wheel of Ramsey's vehicle, causing the Beyond Meat executive to fly into a rage.
The police said that Ramsey jumped out of his SUV and "punched through the back windshield" of the Subaru. When the driver got out of his car to see what was happening, Ramsey "pulled him in close and started punching his body." Police report that he also "bit the owner's nose, ripping the flesh on the tip of the nose."
When the police arrived at the scene, they reported finding "two males with bloody faces."
