Olympic hurdler turned bobsledder Lolo Jones is under investigation for her role in a bar brawl with the step-daughter of bobsled Hall-of-Famer, Tony Carlino, reports USA Today.
Jones was allegedly partying at Roomers, a popular club in Lake Placid, N.Y., when the incident took place and the two women had to be separated by bouncers.
Darrin Steele, chief executive officer for the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation (USBSF), said that it did not appear as if Jones “knocked out” the woman as initially alleged. He also said that though no sanctions had been levied against Jones — yet — that was subject to change as more details come to light.
Neither Jones or Carlino have issued comments.
As previously reported by NewsOne, Jones recently made headlines when she mocked Trayvon Martin‘s friend, Rachel Jeantel, on Twitter by comparing her to Tyler Perry’s alter-ego ‘Madea.’
Rachel Jeantel looked so irritated during the cross-examination that I burned it on DVD and I'm going to sell it as Madea goes to court.—

Jeantel, 19, was the last person to speak with Martin on the night of February 26, 2012, 5 minutes before he was gunned down by George Zimmerman, 29.
Jones didn’t respond during that time either, instead deleting the tweet and carrying on with business as usual.
