10TV in Columbus reported just a few minutes ago that they had learned that Senior Running Back Carlos Hyde will not be charged for his role (whatever it may have been) in the now infamous Sugar Bar 2 altercation. BREAKING UPDATE: Columbus Police Say Ohio State’s Hyde Will Not Face Charges – http://t.co/6k6k3diBi7 — 10TV.com (@10TV) July 30, 2013 It has been reported that the accuser did not want to pursue charges, for reasons that are not immediately known. Speculation has been rampant that it may be related to the fact that she can be seen taking a swing at Hyde just before he allegedly struck her, which could have been a mitigating circumstance for the District Attorney. The accuser had just returned from vacation and was scheduled to make a public statement tomorrow, according to Kyle Rowland of Eleven Warriors. I spoke to the victim in the alleged assault by Carlos Hyde. She said she plans on releasing a statement tomorrow. — Kyle Rowland (@KyleRowland) July 30, 2013   The fact remains that Hyde may still be suspended by the team for his participation in the incident. My prediction is that he will miss at least part, if not all, of the season opener against Buffalo, as well as perhaps join Freshman Marcus Baugh on landscaping duty in the Buckeye Grove. What do you think is appropriate punishment, given what we know? Sound off in the comments.
