The U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation is looking into a nightclub altercation that allegedly involved Olympic hopeful Lolo Jones.


Jones reportedly argued early Saturday with a woman before bouncers at the Roomers club separated them. Police say no charges were filed.

USBSF spokeswoman Amanda Bird says the federation is interviewing athletes and witnesses and would act if needed when the process ends.

Jones did not return requests for comment.

Jones is an Olympic hurdler entering her second bobsled season. She's been criticized for joking about her bobsledding prize money, once challenged former Rutgers football player Eric LeGrand to race without knowing he was paralyzed, and has been ripped for her lucrative sponsorship deals.
