The arrest report states that Tyson was released on bail the same day.

Doug Ramsey, the former chief operating officer at Beyond Meat, left the company last month shortly after his arrest for the attack.
Ramsey was arrested in September on charges of “terroristic threats” and third-degree assault after allegedly biting a man on the nose after an Arkansas football game. Ramsey was released on $11,000 bail the next day, according to court records.
Beyond Meat suspended Ramsey after the incident and he left the company in October.
