Yahoo's Charles Robinson reports that Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde is not expected to face charges for the alleged assault of a woman at a Columbus nightclub over the weekend.

Robinson, citing a source, said surveillance footage from the nightclub "appears to clear" Hyde because it reveals that he didn't make contact with the alleged victim:

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 incident happened early Saturday morning at a place called Sugar Bar 2, and the woman filed a report with police later that day. Hyde had been identified as a person of interest in the case. He was suspended from the Buckeyes yesterday pending the outcome of the police investigation.
