Tyson Foods CFO John Tyson got hammered drunk and ended up breaking into his neighbors house, passing out in her bed
It’s been a while since the dog days of summer when we ripped a bunch of “trending” articles on The Liberty Line. Now that the Phillies have ended and no one cares about the Philadelphia 76ers until Christmas, I figured we would get back into the mix this week with some stories making their rounds on the internet.
That brings us to Tyson Foods CFO John Tyson, who reportedly got hammered drunk, broke into his neighbors house, and ultimately passed out in the woman’s bed.
Tyson Foods CFO John Tyson Arrested
NBC News- The chief financial officer of Tyson Foods — the son of the company’s chairman — was arrested in Arkansas over the weekend after he entered a random woman’s home while he was intoxicated and fell asleep in her bed, police said.
John R. Tyson, 32, was found asleep at the home in the 400 block of North Mock Avenue in Fayetteville 2:05 a.m. Sunday, according to the preliminary arrest report. Tyson’s headquarters is in Springdale, about 10 miles northeast of Fayetteville. A college-age woman who lived in the home called police about a potential burglary, saying she believed she left the front door unlocked and returned home to find “a male she did not know asleep in her bed.”
The officer woke Tyson up, and he sat up in bed but did not verbally respond, according to the report. After he briefly sat up, he lay back down and tried to go to sleep, the report said. The officer said that an odor of intoxicants was coming from his breath and his body and that his movements were “sluggish and uncoordinated.”
Listen, this honestly is more common than people may think and I really don’t agree with bashing this guy. The only real reason to criticize him would be the fact that he’s not in his early 20’s anymore. If you’re 32 years old, it’s expected that you can hold your alcohol a little better than breaking into a neighbors home and passing out in their bed.
Side Note: The craziest thing about this story is the fact that Johnny boy is just 32 years old and CFO of the chicken giant Tyson Foods.
Anyways, this happens when you’re young and binge drinking your face off. Here’s a few examples that I remember from “back in the day”. When I was in college (shoutout West Virginia University Braxton Towers) my buddy wandered onto the wrong floor more than once and ended up sleeping in another dorm room. At senior week, another friend woke up on a random couch in Ocean City, Maryland.
Point being, it happens.
Also, the entire situation seemed relatively innocent. I totally get that it’s scary to get back to your house and there’s someone there passed out in your bed, but at the same time, this guy had no idea what was going on. He literally just tried to go back to sleep so I’m willing to give him a pass on this one. No harm, no foul.
