An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles
  1. You insulted him; this is his complaint.
  2. His complaint is that you insulted him.
  3. He complained that you insulted him.

When in doubt, you could always use a semi-colon, like in the first example, but sometimes rephrasing or rewording proves best, such as the second and third examples.
