Beyond Meat Executive Suspended After Biting a Man's Nose

Ramsey was also charged with making a terrorist threat after Saturday’s attack outside a University of Arkansas football game in Fayetteville.

Beyond Meat announced Tuesday that Ramsey has been suspended indefinitely.

Ramsey was angered when another driver inched in front of him in a traffic lane and made contact with Ramsey’s Ford Bronco SUV’s front passenger wheel.

After getting out of his vehicle, Ramsey punched through the other driver’s windshield.

When the driver got out of his car, Ramsey punched him. Ramsey ripped off the flesh from the other driver’s nose, according to the police report.

Witnesses and the driver reported Ramsey’s threats. The two men were separated by occupants of both vehicles.

He was released on bond for $11,085 on Sunday, according to court records. Oct. 19 is the date of a court appearance. A name of Ramsey’s attorney could not be found on Tuesday.
