Since the arrest, Tyson has since issued two apologies, one in a company-wide email and one during the food processing company’s Nov. 14, 2022, earnings call. 

"I’m embarrassed, and I want to let you know that I take full responsibility for my action," he told investors and analysts during the call. "This was an incident inconsistent with our company values, as well as my personal values."
