Ohio State running back Carlos
Hyde will be suspended at least the first three games of the upcoming football
Columbus police closed Hyde's case on Tuesday after a woman involved in an
alleged bar scuffle decided not to press charges.
OSU head coach Urban Meyer had
indefinitely suspended his starting running back when news of the story broke and
released the following statement Tuesday night:
"Carlos Hyde will be suspended for
at least the first three games of the 2013 season for conduct not representative
of this football program or this university. He will be required to fulfill
additional obligations before he is allowed to play in a game."
Ohio State plays Buffalo, San
Diego State and at California the first three games of the season.
