Tyson Foods CFO John Tyson was detained early Sunday in Arkansas after allegedly becoming intoxicated and falling asleep in the wrong house.

Tyson, 32, was charged with public intoxication and trespassing and booked in Washington County jail. Tyson Foods is headquartered in Springdale, Arkansas.

A woman who did not know Tyson allegedly found him asleep in her bed around 2 a.m., according to local television station KNWA/Fox24, which cited a police report. Tyson’s breath smelled of alcohol, and he was unable to verbally respond to police, the station reported. The woman told police that she believed the front door was unlocked.

Tyson is the son of the company’s chairman, John H. Tyson, and the great-grandson of founder John W. Tyson. The company is scheduled to report its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings Nov. 14.

Ramsey’s alleged assault occurred in a parking garage altercation near Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville after a University of Arkansas football game. The college celebrated homecoming this weekend but lost the football game on Saturday.
