Cops have released bodycam vid of the most entertaining arrest in months … when an heir to the Tyson Foods fortune got so wasted he pulled a Goldilocks that got him busted.
It’s far from heinous … in fact, it’s kinda relatable for anyone who’s been blackout drunk. Tyson Foods CFO John Tyson got so drunk, he entered a house — not his own — meandered to the bedroom, got in bed and passed out.The 32-year-old Harvard/Stanford grad ended up in the bed of a female college student — she wasn’t there — and began to snooze.
It went down in Fayetteville, Arkansas earlier this month. The woman called the cops and they realized it was John after pulling his ID out of his pocket. They tried to rouse him, with little success.
In the footage, obtained by Vice News, John finally sits up, but decides it’s way too much of an effort and lays back down. You hear a cop say, “John, I need you to wake up and talk to me before I drag you out of her buck naked.” He doesn’t/can’t really cooperate, so 3 cops yank him out of bed in his boxers.
John was charged with criminal trespass and public intoxication. He’s profusely apologized to the folks at Tyson Foods and promised it wouldn’t happen again.
Thing is, there was no malice here so John will be ok. Besides, he’s probably gonna get way more Instagram followers now. Dude’s good-looking!
“Mr. Tyson! John! Fayetteville Police Department, you’re not in your house,’” an officer loudly tells Tyson as he’s snuggled beneath the covers in his underwear, according to the footage obtained by Vice.
The 32-year-old scion of the Tyson meatpacking empire raises his head and briefly looks at the police officers before rolling over without saying anything.
“John, I need you to wake up and talk to me before I drag you out of here butt naked,” the officer continues.
After refusing to get up out of the woman’s bed, the officer shrugs at his partner and the two rip the sheets off of him, the footage shows. Tyson sits up, and tries to pull the sheets back over him before the officer tells him to “put your hands behind your back.”
“Yo yo yo yo — hey, hey, whoa, whoa” was all Tyson could mumble as the officers try to cuff him.
Tyson was charged for public intoxication and trespassing after a college-aged woman came home and found him sleeping in her bed around 2 a.m.
The officers wrote in the arrest report that there was an odor of intoxicants coming from Tyson’s breath and body and that his movements were “sluggish and uncoordinated.”

The woman who lived at the home told investigators that the front door was left unlocked, allowing Tyson to enter the premises.
Tyson was booked that morning and released later that evening, according to the Washington County, Arkansas, Sheriff’s Department.
“I’m embarrassed, and I want to let you know that I take full responsibility for my actions,” Tyson CFO John Tyson, CNBC reported.
“I just wanted you guys to hear this directly from me and to know that I’m committed to making sure this never happens again,” he said.
