Beyond Meat Inc. suspended its chief operating officer following his arrest on allegations that he bit a man’s nose during an altercation after a college football game.

Doug Ramsey has been suspended, effective immediately, the plant-based meats company said in a statement Tuesday. The 53-year-old became Beyond Meat’s operating chief in December after a three-decade career with Tyson Foods Inc. Operations will be overseen on an interim basis by Jonathan Nelson, Beyond Meat’s senior vice president for manufacturing operations, the company said.
