USBSF expects no sanctions from Jones bar incident

WEDNESDAY, JULY 17, 2013

The U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation said Tuesday night it has found no reason to sanction Olympic hopeful Lolo Jones for her role in a nightclub altercation that involved the stepdaughter of one of the sport’s Hall of Famers. Jones and the woman, whose name was not released, got into some sort of argument early Saturday and were eventually separated by bouncers at Roomers in Lake Placid, N.Y. A USBSF spokesperson said the team found no proof to support widespread reports that Jones “knocked out” the woman, who is the stepdaughter of longtime bobsled fixture Tony Carlino. Police said no charges or reports were filed. Jones is an Olympic hurdler entering her second bobsled season.
