COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- Charges will not be filed against OSU football player Carlos Hyde in connection with an alleged assault of a young woman at a Downtown bar, according to police.
OSU head coach Urban Meyer indefinitely suspended Hyde from the team after the senior running back's name surfaced as part of a police investigation into a woman's claim that she was assaulted at Sugar Bar 2 on July 20.
Columbus police announced Tuesday that they officially closed the investigation after the alleged victim declined to pursue charges against a "person of interest" connected to the case.
Hours after announcing the closure of the investigation, police released surveillance footage of the altercation, which appears to show Hyde retaliating after a woman's attempt to hit him.
Buckeye coaches have not commented on the video or Hyde's future with the team.
