Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde will not be charged with assault stemming from a July 20 altercation at a bar after the alleged victim told police she was not going to press charges, according to Channel 10 in Columbus. The case is now officially closed.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Ohio State coaches are aware of the decision. 

Surveillance video of the incident, which can be seen below, was released on Tuesday afternoon by WTVN in Columbus.

On July 22, head coach Urban Meyer announced Hyde would be suspended indefinitely, pending legal action. Hyde rushed for 970 yards and 16 touchdowns on 185 attempts as a junior last season.

I wonder if that young lady now has a nice shiny new SUV sitting in her driveway? Maybe a couple of new tattoos?

@Bruces1g Hahaha, did you even watch the video?  Maybe you should worry more about real crimes like Alabama players mugging students.

@danboz11 That is the best you got? Really? With all that has gone on with St. Urban's players AND at Ohio State the past few years.

 At least the 4 Bama players were kicked off the team - and out of the school - immediately. Not some wrist-slap where they sit out 3 meaningless games.

@Bruces1g @danboz11 I was merely laughing at the fact that you insinuated that they'd have to pay this girl off when no crime was even committed.  I'd be more worried about my players flashing mass amounts of cash.

OK Urban.  You have a "zero tolerance" for guys who are violent toward women.  Although the lady in question has decided not to file charges, the video tape does show an altercation.  What are you gonna do?  Hide behind the fact that no charges were filed. or .........?
