Tyson Foods CFO John Tyson found himself in handcuffs Sunday in Arkansas after a woman called authorities on him for allegedly drunkenly trespassing into her home and sleeping in her bed.

Local media reports authorities arrested Tyson, 32, for criminal trespass and public intoxication. He was booked into the Washington County Detention Center and released Sunday evening.

“We’re aware of the incident, and as this is a personal matter, we have no additional comment,” said Derek Burleson, a spokesperson for Tyson Foods.

According to a preliminary arrest report obtained by local media, the unidentified woman found Tyson at approximately 2:05 a.m. asleep in her home bed in Northwest Arkansas.

The woman told dispatchers that she believed Tyson entered her home through the unlocked front door. When authorities arrived, Tyson was reportedly in the back bedroom with his clothes in front of the bed.

Authorities identified Tyson with his driver’s license.

While attempting to wake Tyson from his drunken slumber, police reported they tried to speak with him but did not get a verbal response.

At one point, Tyson sat up but eventually laid back down, attempting to fall asleep again.

Authorities reported an odor of alcohol on Tyson’s breath, and he moved in a sluggish and uncoordinated manner.

Tyson joined the companies executive team in 2019. He was appointed chief financial officer in September.

His arrest comes after a former Tyson Foods executive was charged with biting a man’s nose during a fight in September.

According to local media, Doug Ramsey, now the chief operating officer for Beyond Meat, was charged with felony battery and making a terroristic threat after a September 17 fight in a parking garage at the University of Arkansas.

According to a police report obtained by NBC, Ramsey, 53, exited his vehicle, punched through the rear windshield of another car, and assaulted the driver until he eventually bit the tip of the other driver’s nose, and tore off some of the flesh.

Beyond Meat reportedly said Ramsey would leave the company in a regulatory filing, according to Fox 29.
