Security video appears to show that suspended Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde did not strike a woman in an alleged nightclub assault early Saturday morning in Columbus, Ohio, Yahoo! Sports reported Tuesday night.

Hyde, a senior, was suspended indefinitely from the team on Monday by coach Urban Meyer until the results of the investigation were finalized.

A source told Yahoo! Sports that assault charges were not expected to be filed against Hyde stemming from an incident at the Sugar Bar 2 in Columbus in which the alleged victim claimed a man made contact with her. Video footage from that night apparently shows Hyde turning toward the woman to speak but leaving the area and reaching back in a non-confrontational way, a according to Yahoo! Sports.

The woman filed an assault charge with Columbus police on Saturday. Hyde was not identified by name in the report but considered a person of interest by police.

Columbus police the the Sugar Bar 2 did not respond to a Yahoo! request for comment.

Hyde rushed for 970 yards and 16 touchdowns last season as the Buckeyes' top running back during an undefeated season .

In another weekend incident involving an Ohio State player, cornerback Bradley Roby was arrested on Sunday for allegedly refusing to leave a bar in Bloomington, Ind. Roby is an All-Big Ten cornerback and an All-American candidate.
