FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) – A vegan food company executive has been charged with felony battery and threatening terrorism after a fight outside a soccer game in which he is accused of biting his nose of a man, officials said.

Beyond Meat COO Doug Ramsey has been charged with a road rage attack outside of Saturday’s game between the Arkansas Razorbacks and Missouri State Bears in Fayetteville, Arkansas, according to the Fayetteville KNWA television station.

A police report says the 53-year-old Fayetteville man attacked another man who tried to pass him in a traffic lane of a parking lot and made contact with a wheel of the SUV of Ramsey. A police officer responding to the reported disturbances arrived to find “two men with bloody faces”, the report said.

After speaking with Ramsey, the other man and a witness, the officer determined that Ramsey got out of his SUV and “hit the rear windshield” of the other car. The driver of the other vehicle said he got out of his car and Ramsey “pulled him closer and started punching him” and also “bite the owner’s nose, tearing the flesh on the tip of the nose,” the officer reported.

This man and the witness also reported hearing Ramsey “threatening to kill” the man.

Beyond Meat did not respond to messages from the station and The Associated Press seeking comment.
