Lolo Jones Won't Be Punished For (Allegedly) Knocking Out That Woman in a Lake Placid Bar


Lolo Jones allegedly punched a woman in the face during a bar fight in Lake Placid on Friday. That story emerged yesterday as multiple outlets including Fox Sports Radio and Deadspin cited sources that Jones was in a fight with the stepdaughter of Tony Carlino, a former bobsledder and current USA bobsled official. Jones hasn’t responded to the reports on Twitter or anywhere else, but she did go golfing for the first time. (Golf wins again!) And it doesn’t look like there will be any repercussions. From the Washington Post:

“That could change if new information emerges, but I’m not expecting that to happen at this point,” Darrin Steele, the CEO of the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation, told the Associated Press late Tuesday. “It’s a good reminder of why our athletes need to avoid putting themselves in situations where things like this can happen.”

You know, this doesn’t seem like a reminder of anything. If there are no repercussions, why should Lolo Jones or any athlete avoid situations where something like that can happen? Unless the still-unidentified woman presses charges or the supposed video of the incident emerges, it looks like everyone will continue to act like nothing happened.
