Jared Fogle Is Badly Beaten in Jailhouse Attack — Report

Famed former Subway sandwich shop pitchman and convicted paedophile Jared Fogle was reportedly badly beaten by a fellow inmate in a prison yard attack.

TMZ is reporting that he “got jumped in the rec yard at Englewood prison in Colorado back on January 29, and it was not much of a fight.”

The news site identifies his assailant as Steven Nigg, who is serving time for a weapons conviction.

Nigg left Fogle with a bloody nose, swollen face and scratches on his neck, TMZ reports.

Nigg’s family says he has a particular hatred for child molestors.

Reports TMZ: “We’re told Steven’s pissed because so many child sex predators are housed in the low security facility, and Fogle was just the last straw.”

Fogle was sentenced to 15 yearsin prison last November for having sex with minors and receiving kiddie porn.
