Surveillance Video Shows Encounter Between Hyde, Alleged Assault Victim

Posted: Updated:

NBC4 has learned new information in the alleged assault case in which Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde is a person of interest.

NBC4 reporter Mindy Drayer has watched surveillance video from inside the Sugar Bar 2, where the alleged assault occurred early Saturday morning.

According to the Drayer, the video shows Hyde and a group of friends walking into the downtown Columbus bar, and then engage in a conversation with the 19-year-old woman who filed the assault report.

The video then shows Hyde pointing at the woman's face, saying something to her, and turning away from the situation. At that point, the video shows the woman batting or swatting at Hyde, but it was unclear if she made physical contact with Hyde.

Drayer reports that Hyde turned back in response, and that he stepped toward her and appeared to slap the woman in the face.

After the contact, the video shows the woman grabbing her face and turning to her friends, Drayer said. The video then shows Hyde leaving the area.

As of Wednesday afternoon, no charges have been filed against Hyde. Investigators are still examining all of the evidence.

Hyde was suspended from all team activities Monday, pending the outcome of the student code of conduct and criminal investigations.
