A top executive at plant-based food company Beyond Meat has been charged with felony battery after a fight outside a college football game in which he was accused of biting a man’s nose.

Doug Ramsey was also charged with making a terroristic threat after the attack Saturday in a parking garage outside a University of Arkansas football game. According to a police report, Ramsey was angered when another driver inched in front of him in a traffic lane and made contact with the front passenger wheel on Ramsey’s SUV.

Beyond Meat hasn't responded to requests for comment.

The company has a facility in Columbia. An employment offer to Ramsey from last November posted on the company's investor website says he is based in the Columbia offices.
