Report: Hyde did hit/slap alleged assault victim

Carlos Hyde AP

And here we go again.

Earlier this week, Yahoo! Sports’ Charles Robinson reported that a video of an alleged assault incident involving Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde appeared to clear the player of any wrongdoing. Yahoo! Sports did not show the surveillance video; rather, Robinson cited a source with knowledge of the investigation.

Apparently, one reporter who has seen the video — multiple times, as she claims — begs to differ with that report. Mindy Drayer of NBC4 in Columbus claims the footage of the incident shows Hyde hitting or slapping, but not punching, the alleged female victim. Hyde reportedly struck the woman after she attempted to hit him.

Unfortunately, we’re unable to embed the video of the reporter talking about the, uh, video, but here’s LINK to the story.

Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer said during Big Ten Media Days yesterday that Hyde remains suspended¬†as he continued to gather facts in the case, and was unaware of any “good news” for the running back. So this story is going to ride out a little longer, it seems.

    Not sure why the CPD is taking this long to sort through this! Either he struck the woman or he did not.

    Going on my internet criminal law degree experience – I’m guessing if the video clearly showed El Guapo slapping, punching, pushing, elbowing and/or head butting her, there would have been an arrest or charges being filed already! Pretty sure daddy would have made that happen immediately. If it clearly showed him not doing anything, this whole thing would have already gone away! It appears that the video isn’t all that conclusive because earlier reports about what was on the video included comments about him reaching back in her direction as he was walking away! At this point it is anybody’s guess but in the end, it will not be up to daddy whether to prosecute or not – that will be the DA’s call.

    I agree. We are going on almost week with no confirmation from the CPD, who BTW are the only ones I will believe, not a local weather girl. If he did hit her and it’s on tape, they don’t need to wait for her to come back from vacay to arrest him. They would have PC to do so (I have an internet degree in police work. Maybe from the same school you got your law degree?) I can’t believe that this hasn’t been resolved by now.

    Rumor is the woman who made the claim is the daughter of someone at CPD or prosecutor’s office.

  4. pfitz2 says: Jul 25, 2013 12:26 PM

    Her father is a Westerville PO from what I hear.

  5. dkhhuey says: Jul 25, 2013 12:32 PM

    Oh boy – just talked to a friend of mine (retired CPD) who just viewed the tape. Not as bad as initially reported but said he absolutely hit her in the face and the prosecutor wants to file charges! Not looking good for El Guapo…

  6. pryor4heisman says: Jul 25, 2013 12:33 PM

    I have seen the video. She CLEARLY hits him, he MAYBE touches/pats her face at most.

    I hope this BIMBO weather girl gets fired! Hyde will miss NO GAMES! You heard it here first!

  7. MasMacho says: Jul 25, 2013 12:40 PM

    “Hyde will miss NO GAMES…”

    says “pryor4heisman”….

    I think we should have some soap opera music loading on this page. As the world turns. Urban said it best in his media day presser yesterday: “When we know the facts we’ll make a decision.”

    Not sure that our start TB getting in a slap fight with a woman at a bar is really a great thing anyway.. whether he hit her or not.

    “Knucklehead” as Urban says. He’s exactly right.

  8. dkhhuey says: Jul 25, 2013 12:44 PM

    @mas – I trust my buddy when he says contact happened and given his position within law enforcement, as well as his contacts within the DA’s office – I have no doubt he is spot on about the prosecutor’s intentions. El Guapo tenure on the team is not looking good!

    Now that’s one way to try and “dot the eye” I suppose….

    I don’t know the difference between the two. He hit her or he didn’t. You don’t hit women. So if he did he’s quilts. Open hand, closed.

    I hope that it’s not true. But if it is, will cUM actually man up?

  12. mediocrebob says: Jul 25, 2013 1:28 PM


    So you condone hitting a woman if she hits you first? I hardly believe that if this girl hit him it harmed Hyde. The dudes a monster. Haven’t seen the video but unless he felt his life threatened, how does a man hit a woman? Ridiculous.

    I’m sure you’re mom and dad would be proud of your stance Pryor4…

  13. artvandelaya says: Jul 25, 2013 1:30 PM

    I guess I’m confused why they both are not being charged with a crime since it appears that they both hit each other. Hitting someone is illegal regardless of gender.

    As a buckeye fan, can I sue the weather presenter

  15. dryzzt23 says: Jul 25, 2013 1:47 PM

    If a woman struck me, I’d strike her right back. There cannot be a double standard. Women have nails, and who are we to say that Hyde was not harmed it is entirely plausible that he could have scratches/bruises on his face from her. He is entirely within his rights to defend himself b/c who knows how high she would escalate her attacks.
    If the woman were a bodybuilder, powerlifter, or 500 lbs, would you ppl view her as the “victim”? I think not.

  16. pryor4heisman says: Jul 25, 2013 1:51 PM

    Well said dryzzt23… everyone wants equal rights for woman.

    If she punched him and got slapped for it, thats what Rosa Parks and all those women fought for!! Power to the people!!

  17. kgreat says: Jul 25, 2013 1:52 PM

    If anyone forgets, the woman hit him in the head first and he just reacted. So they can do what they want but he just defended himself according to the video information that I received. So lets not just stand here and put the guy in jail already. Assault whether by a woman or man is still assault and whom ever strikes the first blow is the one that is in for more legal issues then the one who reacts to getting hit.

  18. mediocrebob says: Jul 25, 2013 1:58 PM

    Wow. You two must be little guys. Haha. If a woman hits me, I’m not throwing down with her. There are a lot of other ways to control the situation rather than getting in a boxing match with a female.

    I’m not one of those guys that claims to know it all, but I do know that you don’t EVER hit a woman. Maybe you two didn’t have a father figure in your life. I learned that from my father at a very early age.

  19. mediocrebob says: Jul 25, 2013 1:59 PM

    You’re all blinded by the scarlet and grey. If this is at Michigan or Florida you’d feel very differently. Guaranteed

  20. heny78 says: Jul 25, 2013 2:06 PM

    I wonder if Carlos Hyde would have filed charges if she would have landed a slap and he would have walked away. Girls drive guys insane and get away with everything. they can beat you, and yell in your face, spit in your face and drive a man to suicide, but they want to be treated fairly. Girl power, yeah right. More like I can hit you and you can’t touch me.

  21. heny78 says: Jul 25, 2013 2:07 PM

    I agree with some comments about a guy shouldn’t throw down with a woman, but take Nick Mangolds sister she is a woman, and she could woop anyone of you. Most guys are weak anyway.

  22. MasMacho says: Jul 25, 2013 2:48 PM

    Men don’t hit women. Even power-lifting man-ish women. Unacceptable.

    If you condone or rationalize it, you deserve to life a life free of women. It is 2013. Time to come out of the cave and learn to live with the humans.

  23. bucrightoff says: Jul 25, 2013 2:51 PM

    Women should not be hit period unless you feel your life is in danger. Takes a real coward to strike a woman.

  24. bucrightoff says: Jul 25, 2013 3:37 PM

    Wow this thread is full of Men’s Rights Guys it seems. Must suck never getting laid, so I can see why you all don’t like women.

  25. normtide says: Jul 25, 2013 4:58 PM

    I am against a man striking a woman, also against a woman striking a man. He should have walked away, just because he had something to lose, and she probably didn’t. That said, there is a reason not to punch a big strong athlete in the face, her just might punch you back. It isn’t men’s rights, is common decency. Also, anyone who has been punched in the face can tell you, it has a way of overriding common sense. If one goes to jail, both should. You’ve come a long way baby.

    If you think this mind set keeps you from getting laid, you know nothing about women.

  26. normtide says: Jul 25, 2013 5:00 PM

    He, not her.

  27. 1509lucky says: Jul 25, 2013 5:26 PM

    Ahhh Internet Journalism at its finest once again.

  28. thraiderskin says: Jul 25, 2013 7:00 PM

    If you can throw down like a man, you can take a hit like man… don’t want none, don’t start none!

  29. ryanw822 says: Jul 25, 2013 7:51 PM

    I am completely shocked that Charles Robinson would take a sources word as gospel! SHOCKED!!

  30. mediocrebob says: Jul 25, 2013 8:52 PM

    Really intelligent comment Raider. Class class class

  31. thermanmerman99 says: Jul 26, 2013 4:32 PM

    now where are all of the suckeye buffoons who were calling out all of the suckeye “haters” in a prior article about hyde NOT striking a woman? well we are here now douchebags, where are YOU ALL HIDING AT HUH????

  32. dkhhuey says: Jul 27, 2013 11:58 AM

    You need to let it go therman… your hurricanes lost to the Buckeyes in Arizona… let it go..

  33. hayespanther31 says: Jul 27, 2013 12:35 PM

    I do not condone men hitting women, BUT I do not condone women hitting men either. If she hit him first, she should be charged. Keep your hands to your self unless you want to get hit back. Women are equal to men right?
