COLUMBUS, Ohio — Rumors began swirling on Sunday of running back Carlos Hyde's involvement in an altercation in a downtown Columbus bar, and according to The Columbus Dispatch, that altercation has led to Hyde being dismissed from the team.

A police report named Hyde as a person of interest in an incident that occurred at the Sugar Bar 2 in downtown Columbus this weekend.The incident involved the assault of a woman, with numerous reports claiming that the woman was punched.
No arrests have been made as of yet.
Hyde, who rushed for 970 yards last season and was expected to be even more productive this coming season, has apparently violated one of the zero-tolerance rules that Urban Meyer has, and that is absolutely no violence towards women.
Last year, linebacker Storm Klein was immediately dismissed from the team following an altercation with his girlfriend, but was later reinstated as more information came to light and Klein was cleared.
Ohio State is expected to release a statement on the situation at some point on Monday. We will have more when they do.
