[Eleven Warriors on potential OSU football player legal issues]

Submitted by wresler120 on July 21st, 2013 at 10:23 AM


Take it for what it's worth .. and it may be nothing. But, lead writer for the website Men of the Scarlet and Gray, an Ohio fan site stated on twitter that he has information from a very reliable source that a current Ohio player is in serious legal trouble. he stated he will not give any information until the arrest record is published online.

This has caused an uproar among Ohio fans on twitter, many saying he is just starting a rumor .. which makes no sense since he is a diehard Ohio fan, and he hasn't posted anything about it on his site, so he's not trying to get clicks from it. He seems to stand behind this source.

The original post was 11 hours ago, but he remains solid on his stance as of a few minutes ago.

Let the speculations begin.

I am hearing from a source that a member of the Ohio State Football team may be involved in some serious legal issues. Trying to confirm.



Jeremiah @SYRmotsag 11h

@meechmcghee @Smoe4Bucks I believe my source is 100% reliable but again I cant and wont say any details without a secondary confirmation.


  1. @DaveEggen40 I have no other confirmation yet and the police reports havent hit the internet yet. Hopefully they never do.

  2. @CoachKG1984 @tjessberger Id rather be dead wrong and have no credibility then be right in this case. I hope Tjessberger is right about me.

Mod edit: This at least sounds less life altering than some of the sexual assault cases, and with speculation already around I don't pretend to be able to stop it and keep the thread intact, but we really don't need random Twitter rumors as titles and in OP's at the very least. If/when something is confirmed (or reported for that matter), feel free to update again. JGB.

I can honestly say first hand that neither of the above happened. If you were decent at reporting 'information' you would look up arrest records (available to the public) and see that Carlos Hyde was NOT arrested. 'It sounds like Carlos Hyde was arrested for punching a woman in the face at a nightclub'? Are you kidding me? All you have to do is look up arrest records and see that your story is shit. Please don't spread rumors to gain viewers and instead present factual information.

Assuming you are an Ohio fan, I am linking to what YOUR fans were posting.  And supposedly twitters of folks who either work at or were at the bar.  

So sh*t on your fans and posters.  We're just eating popcorn watching.

First hand means you where there when it allegedly  happened.  Looking up records on the internet isn't first hand and also would not be relevant if he were not arrested or if the arrest was delayed in anyway.(Like her not pressing charges)


Anyways, where did this incident supposedly occur? I imagine the county is pertinent information people need to have when looking up any arrests.

I'm sure if it happened in Ohio, then this thing will get swept under the rug. Those people seem to protect each other and especially starting football players.

'fans', 'supposedly twitters' of folks who either work at or were at the bar. so factual. all hail people who are on twitter and can tweet anything. your website sucks.


July 21st, 2013 at 12:39 PM ^

I kind of doubt this is true.  If he was arrested last night, the local media would have picked it up.  All those guys have sources inside police offices.  This story has been rumored for the last 14 hours with no confirmation...probably a sign it is falling apart.


July 21st, 2013 at 12:57 PM ^

Look guys, this is not a big deal. The lady in question probably worked at the bar and was asking Carlos to pay his tab. Then he claimed that some of the drinks on the tab weren't his and yada yada yada, Carlos punched her in the face. If it helps, Tim Tebow tried to stop him. This kind of thing happens all the time and the players involved learn their lesson and are model citizens going forward.

This thread should be locked until there is a credible source.  The original tweet was from someone who lives in Texas.  It was retweeted by a ND fan and another person with less than 100 followers.
