Doug Ramsey

In one of the most clear examples of irony in a long time, the COO of a vegan food company went from one extreme to another after allegedly getting a taste of some human flesh after an Arkansas Razorbacks football game.

Over the weekend, Beyond Meat COO Doug Ramsey was arrested and charged with terroristic threats and third-degree battery in a parking garage near Razorback Stadium.

According to the police report, after speaking to both parties and a witness, someone driving a Subaru allegedly “inched his way” while stuck in traffic and made contact with the front passenger side of Ramsey’s Bronco. Ramsey allegedly got out of his car and “punched through the back window of the Subaru” and when the owner of the Subaru got out, Ramsey allegedly punched and “bit the owner’s nose, ripping the flesh on the tip of the nose.” The owner of the Subaru and the witness stated that Ramsey threatened to kill the Subaru owner.

Obviously, when KNWA/Fox 24 News posted this story on Twitter, many focused on the juxtaposition that the COO of a plant-based meat substitute company getting arrested for biting a human.
