Beyond Meet COO Doug Ramsey Arrested for Terroristic Threatening & Battery: What Happened?
Beyond Meat COO Doug Ramsey was arrested for terroristic threatening and third-degree battery following a college football game this weekend in Fayetteville, Arkansas. He got into an altercation with a man in the parking garage after the game.
According to the local news outlets, Ramsey was trying to exit the parking garage when the driver of a Subaru touched his vehicle’s front tire on the passenger side. Following this, Ramsey got angry and exited his car.
He then “punched through the back windshield of the Subaru.” This led to a physical altercation between the two and Ramsey allegedly bit the Subaru driver’s nose. It happened after Arkansas’ 38-27 win over Missouri State.

Who is Doug Ramsey?
Doug Ramsey is the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Beyond Meat, a plant-based meat substitute producer company based in Los Angeles running since 2009. Ramsey joined the organization in December 2001.
Prior to this, he had also worked for Tyson Foods and oversaw its poultry and McDonald’s businesses. The headquarters of Tyson is located in Springdale, Arkansas. He started his career there in 1992.
Ramsey was raised in Fayetteville, Arkansas. He graduated from Southern Arkansas University in Agribusiness in 1991. Since then, he had been serving in the food industry through various roles and responsibilities.
Beyond Meat is currently facing skepticism from its investors for disappointing sales, operating challenges, and perennial growth prospects. Its stock has fallen 73% this year amidst inflation worries and FED rate hikes.
The company which was previously valued at $13.4 billion three years ago is now valued at just $1.09 billion. Ramsey’s recent act won’t help it either.
