FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — A food company executive was arrested on a pair of charges after allegedly biting off a man’s nose in a parking lot in Fayetteville, Arkansas, on Saturday night.
Doug Ramsey, 53, of Fayetteville, was arrested Sept. 17 on charges of terroristic threat and third-degree assault. According to a preliminary report, the incident occurred in a parking lot near Razorback Stadium following the University of Arkansas’ win over Missouri State.
Just after 10pm local time, an officer was dispatched to Gate 15 for “a disturbance that had previously occurred in the Stadium Drive (SDPG) parking lot.” The responding officer found “two men with bloody faces” at the scene.
The officer spoke to both parties and a witness before determining that Ramsey had allegedly been in the structure’s lane of traffic, attempting to leave, when a Subaru “inched” in front of Ramsey’s Bronco, making contact with the tire of the car. front passenger side. Ramsey allegedly got out of his vehicle and “pushed through the Subaru’s rear windshield.”
The Subaru’s owner allegedly came out and said Ramsey “pulled him to himself and began to beat his body.” According to the report, Ramsey also “bite into the owner’s nose, tearing the flesh at the tip of the nose.”
