Report: video shows Carlos Hyde didn’t hit alleged victim

Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports is used to putting college programs under the microscope and coming out with some damning information on the other end.

He’s reversing field this time, and it just so happens to benefit Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde. Maybe.

Robinson reports, citing a source, that video footage from a Columbus nightclub appears to clear Hyde of any wrongdoing in an incident over the weekend that involved the assault of a female victim. Hyde, though not officially charged in the incident, was reportedly named a person of interest. He was later indefinitely suspended by Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer.

More from Yahoo!:

The source said video shows Hyde speaking in the direction of the alleged victim just prior to her punching him in the head. The video then shows Hyde leaving the area and reaching back in the woman’s direction in a non-confrontational manner, the source said. From the video, it doesn’t appear Hyde ever made contact with the woman – either before or after she struck him, the source said.

Per the report, charges are not expected to be filed against Hyde, who was Ohio State’s second-leading rusher (and leader among running backs) last season with 970 yards and 16 touchdowns. The Columbus Police Department and the nightclub did not comment for the report.

    I wonder if John Taylor (no effing relation) will cry himself to sleep tonight. Again.

    To the handful of meechigan trolls thinking you had a chance to beat THEE Ohio State University with Carlos out of the mix…. GO BACK TO YOUR SHANTIES

    Now buckeye fans can take a sigh of releif.

    They have a chance against Florida A&M Rattlers and the Buffalo Bulls…

    I’m guessing El Guapo will be running with a great deal of motivation to say a big fat f@#$ you to those that immediately condemned him as guilty! That is NOT going to be good for the defenses he goes up against!!!f

    Viva El Guapo!!!

    Isn’t it about time to change your name to “pryorforpracticesquad” or something?

    So all the Ohio State hating trolls are going to apologize for the recent comments….right?

    But wait there’s more…Said John Taylor (no effing relation) as he sulked, head hung low, all the way back to his miserable life. I do love how he comes out batons-a-twirling spewing vitriol about “The” pride of his home state and then slithers off back to the abyss once again. Heheeee!

    Congrats on going undefeated this upcoming season. It should be very exciting with the excruciating schedule. Good thing a trip to West Lafayette isn’t happening this year…

  11. mediocrebob says: Jul 23, 2013 11:05 PM

    And no. Don’t expect any apologies from anyone who made comments about this before. We all know buckeye fans keep their mouth shut all the time, right?

    1 out of 4 being innocent isn’t too shabby for cUM . He’s gotta come out of this feeling like he got a “W”.

    In defense of fans from the south that were condemning Hyde and OSU, they are used to meting out harsh punishment without proof.

    Actually this is the assault video lol.

  14. raiderufan says: Jul 24, 2013 7:38 AM

    So…is the Aaron Hernandez stain showing it’s ugly head in college football now? Even a supporter of Meyer has to notice that this is crazy quickness on the suspension compared to the slack he gave at Florida. Especially without him even being arrested.

    Everyone on here can put their pitchforks away. Guilty until proven innocent….the American way.

    Noticeable absence of UFelon trolls here. Must be busy barking at dogs or something.

    I love that video of El Guapo moving over the coach – Urban’s reaction is priceless!!! According to the noise coming out of Ohio – the supposed ‘victim’ has gone on vacation!!! This is going to get interesting…

  18. dkhhuey says: Jul 24, 2013 1:17 PM

    sorry – mowed over the coach…

  19. bigbuckeye76 says: Jul 24, 2013 2:24 PM

    I’m not buying it…clearly Urb had the video doctored…right?
