By Ross Fulton on July 23, 2013 at 6:12p
Columbus Police are reviewing surveillance video footage of an incident involving Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde.

Per a 10TV report, Columbus police are reviewing surveillance video from inside the bar where a woman said she was assaulted by Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde.  The alleged incident happened early Saturday morning at Sugar Bar 2 in Columbus.

Police are also interviewing Carlos Hyde this week and expect to speak with the alleged victim some time during the next week.

Charges have yet to be filed in the case.

We'll have more as this develops.

1) I'm surprised they can see anything since I figured the bright flames of the Hell that is Sugar Bar 2 would ruin any potential tape.

2) If this was as cut-and-dry as people thought before Carlos would have already been cuffed and stuffed.

3) This concludes my episode of #hot #legal #tarkes.

I agree with #2.  Actions (or lack of) might be speaking louder than words so far. 
I'm sure Carlos is also glad it hasn't come to getting cuffed. And...stuffed...*gulp*

They're waiting a week to interview him? 

This is going to drag out.

You know the old saying: "A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its boots."
As it turns out, while the quote is almost always attributed to Mark Twain, he didn't actually say it (a delicious turn of irony, if you ask me). Instead, the quote is actually attributed to a couple of 18th- and 19th-Century journalists.

They have already seen the tape.... and no charges. Longer this goes without the charges the better it is for Hyde, he still could get something but based on what out there now it's hard to imagine him getting any thing more than some kind of misdemeanor. They will still interview the "victim," although it is seeming more and more she is that, apparently she is out of town saw on twitter out of the country? I have no idea what those circumstances are or where she is but I have to think that if I blew something way out of proportion and was about to look like an idiot I may head out of town too.... That's not entirely fair, but her absence and failure to talk to investigators to this point is confusing to say the least and definitely further points to Hyde getting reinstated before camp. I mean if you got "assaulted" by anyone let alone a 6'2" 235 NFL prospect don't you think telling your side of the story would be a priority?

Edit: Whoops, meant to ask if anyone had seen this and can give a brief rundown. Irrevelant now as I saw a comment in the forums regarding it.


BKLYN_Buckeye's picture

Does anyone know what that means?

BWells's picture

It could be referring to what I saw on Channel 6 News a little bit ago.  I posted about it in the forum, but I'll just put it here too...

BWells's picture

So I just saw on Channel 6 news that they were hearing that the video shows that Hyde approached a woman to get her attention because somebody who he was out with wanted to talk to her.  When Hyde tapped the woman on the shoulder, she pushed his hand away and punched him in the face... They didn't really give any information on what happened after that, but I would say that this won't be as serious as we all thought yesterday.

AndyVance's picture

I tried to find the video on ABC 6's website (which is horrible) and it's not there. Thanks for sharing this tidbit.

Oh my lord, you are right. That might be the worst website I have ever visited. Wow.

I would rather they take their time to get it right than rush to judgment and cast any doubt of any perceived favoritism toward the Buckeyes or succumbed to pressure to charge Hyde to appease the haters.

The sad thing about all of this is if Hyde does indeed clear his name and it turns out to be an "accident" and something that wouldnt have even been an issue if the alleged suspect wasnt a local celebrity, the media is going to have a field day with Urban reinstating a kid who didnt really do nothing wrong.


ralEbuckI's picture

I don't follow ... are you saying that if it turns out Hyde did nothing wrong, that Meyer is going to get a hard time for too severe a punishment?
If that's your concern, let me ease your worries.  Never going to happen.

BassDropper's picture

No, basically Im saying it's a lose-lose either way for Meyer. There will be harsh criticism from the Clay Travis' of the world who want to do nothing but try to bring down Urban. 


OurHonorDefend09's picture

I believe he is saying either one of Urban's players screwed up and Urban is the devil, or Hyde didn't do anything, but the media is going to make it seem like he murdered someone and Urban didn't punish him at all by reinstating him.

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

Chief B1G Dump's picture

The media just destroys every story trying to be the first with the scoop. This story shouldn't even be in the public realm yet as NO CHARGES HAVE BEEN FILED.

I just wonder how many kids needmto be besmirched and lives ruined before "reporters" are going to be held accountable for misreporting...

BUCKfutter's picture

so, over 48 hours with video of what happened and no charges yet? it's certainly not a bad sign.

the delay was caused by the chick apparently leaving town on vacation

EvanstonBuckeye's picture

The chick who might have punched him? Now on vacation? Not trying to downplay potential assault (let alone against a woman), but I think this will be cleared up before the weekend.

FROMTHE18's picture

situations real sketchy...i think if Hyde did it in any sense, hed been arrested at this point in time. Im going to echo some sentiments presented on this site over the past day: if it turns out he only did what is being reported on the tape, then this supposed victim should be dealt with accordingly. 

Bucks's picture

If this IS the case, Hyde had better be reinstated immediately & this woman arrested for making a false police report. That link would be absolutely beyond the best case scenario.
Absolutely BIZARRE story.

Apparently it hurts them to be punched there. I'm still skeptical.

Clay Travis's next article title: Urban Meyer doctors surveillance video. Star running back reinstated
Meanwhile Travis praised the local DA for dropping the Morrison charges.

Get off your knees Clay Travis, you're blowing your journalistic credentials....

Poison nuts's picture

There seems to be a contest amongst Clay Travis, Matt Hayes & Mike Bianchi for who can troll UFM the hardest. Clay Travis's latest article is borderline libelous if not outright libelous & I wonder what he will say if Hyde is cleared. He would owe an apology at minimum but I won't hold my breath.

I feel so very dirty for looking at this box. Kind of like a Donkey show: Disgusting, but it was hard to look away because of the shock factor.

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

uh, no. the donkey show is hard to look away because of the perversion. That is a dude's ass with a enema plug.
You can't believe what you just saw with the donkey show, You wish you didn't just see that image above! big difference!

What an asshat. May as well congratulate the millions of men who go to bed each night also having not punched a woman. It appears that Carlos is exactly like all of them.

Just curious, and apologize if this is already out there, but has El Guapo been "reinstated" with the team, assuming he was ever really suispended?
