Beyond Meat, Inc. is a Los Angeles–based producer of plant-based meat substitutes founded in 2009. The company launched its products in the United States in 2012 and currently offers plant-based options in the beef, pork and poultry categories.

Ramsey, 53, was charged with terroristic threatening and third-degree battery for his bite, and was jailed in Washington County on Saturday evening. He was released Sunday, according to Washington County, Arkansas.

A preliminary report states, “the incident happened at a parking garage near Razorback Stadium following Arkansas’ victory over Missouri State.”

“Just after 10 p.m., an officer was dispatched to Gate 15 for ‘a disturbance that had previously occurred in the Stadium Drive Parking Garage (SDPG).’ The responding officer found ‘two males with bloody faces’ at the scene.”

“A witness determined that Ramsey was allegedly in the traffic lane of the structure, attempting to leave, when a Subaru ‘inched his way’ in front of Ramsey’s Bronco, making contact with the front passenger’s side tire. Ramsey got out of his vehicle and allegedly ‘punched through the back windshield of the Subaru.'”

According to Yahoo Finance, “The increasing pressure on consumers has extinguished any hopes of a rebound in sales of plant-based meat this year, dealing a blow to a sector that was an investors’ favourite when shoppers were prepared to pay higher prices for the product.”

The figures show that after climbing over the past two years in the UK, the growth in sales of plant-based meats was just 2.5% in the 36 weeks leading to early September, according to market research firm Kantar. 

Sales climbed 40% in 2020 and 14% in 2021.
