Tyson Food items CFO John Tyson was arrested early Sunday in Arkansas right after allegedly turning out to be intoxicated and falling asleep in the improper residence.
Tyson, 32, was charged with community intoxication and trespassing and booked in Washington County jail. Tyson Meals is headquartered in Springdale, Arkansas.
A girl who did not know Tyson allegedly uncovered him asleep in her mattress all around 2 a.m., according to regional television station KNWA/Fox24, which cited a law enforcement report. Tyson’s breath smelled of alcohol, and he was not able to verbally answer to police, the station described. The girl advised law enforcement that she believed the front doorway was unlocked.
Tyson did not instantly answer to a request for comment. A representative for Tyson Meals mentioned in a assertion to CNBC that the business is informed of the incident but will not be commenting further more, calling it a “private issue.”

Tyson was named chief money officer for the company in late September, when his predecessor Stewart Glendinning was tapped to lead the company’s organized food items division. He joined the business in 2019 immediately after operating in financial investment banking, private equity and venture capital.
Tyson is the son of the company’s chairman, John H. Tyson, and the excellent-grandson of founder John W. Tyson. The enterprise is scheduled to report its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings Nov. 14.
Tyson is the next outstanding C-suite foods government to be arrested in Washington County over the previous two months. Outside of Meat Main Running Officer Doug Ramsey — a previous Tyson government himself — was arrested in September for allegedly biting a man’s nose. Beyond Meat suspended and then fired Ramsey.
Ramsey’s alleged assault transpired in a parking garage altercation around Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville soon after a College of Arkansas soccer activity. The college celebrated homecoming this weekend but lost the soccer match on Saturday.
Tyson, who is a lecturer at the university’s small business college, was arrested about a mile away from the stadium.
