Carlos Hyde exonerated?

It what can only be described as awesome and welcome news to OSU fans Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports is reporting that the video surveillance recording shows that Carlos Hyde was the one punched and did not punch the victim back. Here is part of what he had to say.

Surveillance footage from a Columbus nightclub appears to clear Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde of an alleged assault, a source familiar with the investigation told Yahoo! Sports.

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, a source who spoke to Yahoo! Sports on the condition of anonymity said. 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.

From the outset I tried to remind everyone that the story I was posting was about an accusation and not the entire story. That eventually we would have more chapters written to this story and this is just the next in a long one but hopefully it will end happily for Carlos Hyde.

    Looks like someone needs to get a good lawyer, and it’s not Carlos Hyde.
