Tyson Foods has suspended its chief financial officer, John R. Tyson, after he was arrested on charges of alleged driving while intoxicated, the company said today.

The U.S. meat packer said that Tyson was suspended from his duties immediately and that Curt Calaway, a senior finance executive at the company, will take over as interim CFO.
