Lolo Jones reportedly involved in fight with bobsled official’s stepdaughter
FOX Sports Radio’s Amy Van Dyken-Rouen, a former Olympic swimmer, reported on her “FOX Sports Tonight” show (34:00 mark) that Lolo knocked out the daughter of Tony Carlino at a club. Carlino is the former Team USA bobsled coach and head of the Lake Placid track where the team is training.
Van Dyken-Rouen says word about the incident hadn’t gotten out because the team was told to keep the incident quiet.
A few folks on Twitter mentioned seeing Lolo at a bar that night.
What are you all doing tonight????? Oh well I'm at the bar with Lolo Jones

Deadspin says the incident occurred at Roomers Night Club in Lake Placid after 1:00 a.m. early Saturday morning. A witness told them Carlino’s stepdaughter was visibly drunk and verbally confronted Jones by the dance floor. Lolo pushed her down and left, and the stepdaughter followed Jones outside where they were separated by bouncers. Aja Evans is the other bobsledder supposedly involved in the incident.
LBS has reached out to Jones for a comment on the report.
