The latest news from the Carlos Hyde situation looks to be in favor of the Buckeye RB. According to a Yahoo! source, surveillance footage from a Columbus nightclub appears to clear Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde of an alleged assault. Charges are not expected to be filed against Hyde after video from Sugar Bar 2 shows he didn’t appear to make contact with an alleged victim who claimed to have been assaulted early Saturday morning
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.
The investigation is continuing but this is great news for Buckeye Nation.
