Four Ohio State Buckeyes, including two prominent members of the football team, were disciplined on Monday by coach Urban Meyer.
Carlos Hyde, who rushed for 970 yards last season is a person of interest in an assault case that was alleged to have happened early Saturday morning in Columbus at a nightspot.
A woman alleges she was assaulted by Hyde. Police are to speak with the woman on Tuesday and, at that time, it is possible charges will be filed.
Coach Meyer suspended Hyde from all football-related activities indefinitely, pending the outcome of the case.
Cornerback Bradley Roby, one of the mainstays on the team was arrested early Sunday morning in Bloomington, Indiana and charged with battery, resulting in bodily injuries.
Roby will not be allowed to attend this week’s Big Ten Media Days in Chicago.
Meyer also took disciplinary action Monday against two freshmen who were involved in legal issues the past week: tight end Marcus Baugh, and defensive lineman Tim Gardner.
Coach Meyer issued a statement while handing out the discipline. “I have a clear set of core values in place that members of this football program are constantly reminded of and are expected to honor. There are also expectations with regard to behavior. I expect our players to conduct themselves responsibly and appropriately and they will be held accountable for their actions”.
