A pair of Ohio State players find themselves in the news for unfortunate reasons. Buckeyes running back Carlos Hyde was recently named as the person of interest in a police investigation concerning an altercation at a bar in Columbus over the weekend and has been subsequently dismissed from the team while cornerback Bradley Roby was arrested and faces charges of battery. Eleven Warriors.com was the first to obtain the police report on Hyde who is linked to the alleged assault of a female which took place early this past Saturday in Columbus. No arrest has been made at this point. The Columbus Dispatch reports that was arrested early Sunday morning in Bloomington, Indiana and is facing preliminary charges of battery resulting in bodily injury. Reports regarding Roby state that the player refused to leave a bar after being asked and had to be “subdued” by in-house security. His case summary was filed as a criminal misdemeanor—a crime with a maximum penalty of six months in jail. During the Buckeyes’ 12-0 season of 2012, Hyde accounted for 1,021 total yards (970 yards on the ground) and 17 touchdowns. Roby, who opted to return for his junior season rather than going to the NFL, has been listed on several preseason lists for various national awards (including the Thorpe Award) as well as being projected as an All-American. He recorded 62 tackles in 2012, intercepting two passes and defending 16 others. Eleven Warriors also reports that additional news, potentially involving a third player, may be on the way, though not as severe as the reports surrounding Hyde and Roby.
