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 statements about the incident.

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.’

Jeantel, 19, was the last person to speak with Martin on the night of February 26, 2012, five minutes before he was gunned down by George Zimmerman.

Jones didn’t respond during that time either, instead deleting the tweet and carrying on with business as usual.
