July 31, 2013 Columbus Ohio – Police released video of an altercation at a Downtown bar involving OSU football player Carlos Hyde hours after announcing the running back would not be charged in connection with the incident. In the surveillance footage from Sugar Bar 2, Hyde is seen approaching a woman who was dancing on a riser after talking with a group of men on the club’s floor. As Hyde began to walk away from the riser, the woman appeared to take a swing at him, which was immediately followed by an apparent retaliation from Hyde. Police released the footage after the woman involved in the altercation decided against pursuing charges, resulting in the investigation’s closure. OSU head coach Urban Meyer — who indefinitely suspended Hyde after the investigation was announced — has not commented on the video or Hyde’s future with the team.
