A vegan meat Chief Operations Officer (COO) has been arrested for allegedly biting another man's nose.
The incident is said to have occurred on Saturday, 17 September, around 10pm after a college football game.
The dispute allegedly took place in a car park, near Razorback Stadium, with Ramsey being said to have punched through the windshield of a car that hit his front tire.
When the owner of the car got out, Ramsey allegedly hit the man, threatened him, and started 'ripping the flesh on the tip of the nose' - the police report notes.
The investigation into the incident remains ongoing and Ramsey is expected to appear at Fayetteville District Court on October 19.
People were, of course, quick to point out the irony of a vegan meat COO allegedly biting a man, with one user writing on Twitter: "The Beyond Meat COO was arrested for biting a man’s nose. Once again proving you just can’t beat the real thing."
Another asked: "Is ‘nose’ considered beyond meat?"
While a third seemed to confirm the user's theory, adding: "Cartilage is indeed Beyond Meat."
Meanwhile one was just there for the puns: "I would say that somebody stuck their nose in somebody else’s business but Beyond Meat is meatless... everybody nose this."
Ramsey joined Beyond Meat as COO back in 2021, saying he was 'thrilled' to join the company at the time.
For those not familiar, Beyond Meat offers plant-based, meat alternative products to help the environment: "By shifting from animal to plant-based meat, we can positively affect growing global issues such as constraints on natural resources and animal welfare.
"After all, the positive choices we make every day – no matter how small – can have a great impact on our world."
Upon joining the company last year, Ramsey said: 'Beyond Meat is the gold standard in the plant-based meat industry and I am proud to join in its mission to produce delicious products that are healthier for our customers and more sustainable for our planet."
"I’m thrilled to be a part of a company that is constantly innovating and delivering high-quality products to some of the world’s most prominent food service and retail customers," he went on to add.
