Jared Scott Fogle (born August 23, 1977), also known as “the Subway Guy“, is a former American spokesperson for Subway restaurants. After his significant weight loss attributed to eating Subway sandwiches, Fogle was made a spokesperson for the company’s advertising campaigns from 2000 to 2015.
Fogle’s tenure with Subway ended after he was investigated for paying for sex with minors and receiving child pornography in 2015. On August 19, 2015, he agreed to plead guilty in federal court to possessing child pornography and traveling to pay for sex with minors. Fogle formally pleaded guilty to the charges on November 19, 2015, and was sentenced to serve 15 years, 8 months in federal prison, with a minimum of 13 years before becoming eligible for early release.
After watching Jared Fogle receive special treatment and get treated like a pedophile ‘god’, this inmate took justice into his own hands.
A man who gave Jared Fogle, what some would call a well-deserved beating, is speaking out. Fogle, Subway Restaurant’s former spokesman, and convicted pedophile is serving a 15-year sentence for possession of child pornography and traveling to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor. Steve Nigg presumably beat up Fogle because he said Fogle was getting rock star treatment and that other pedophiles were looking up to him as a hero and a god.
Fogle wasted no time in learning how to protect himself since being sent to prison last year. He quickly secured some strongmen to serve as his bodyguards while on the inside. And then he began to relish in the attention other pedophiles were giving him, according to Nigg. “Jared is their hero…You would not believe how arrogant Jared was. He hired bodyguards and the other child molesters looked at him as if he was a god,” the senior citizen wrote.
But Nigg made sure Fogle would lose his untouchable status when he attacked the millionaire pedophile, beating him so badly he bloodied his nose, swole up his face, and left some scratches on his neck.
Nigg, who is in prison for gun offenses and is not scheduled to be released until 2024, pushed “Fogle to the ground” and struck him “multiple times in the face with a closed fist,” according to the report, as covered by Heavy. Nigg’s only injuries were a small cut on his hand and abrasion on his knee from the concrete, the report states.
After the attack, Nigg told his family he wanted everyone to know “he did it for the victims and their families,” Nigg’s nephew, Jimmy Nigg, told Heavy.com.
Nigg, according to his nephew, was a good man and did not deserve to be in jail. “My uncle spent 15 years in prison doing hard time for his robbery when he was a young man. He spent 20 years living in Wisconsin before he was arrested and convicted of selling the hunting rifles he inherited from my late grandfather’s estate,” Jimmy Nigg told Heavy.com. “Steve Nigg (was) the executor of the estate and his role was to sell the land and property of the estate and divide it among the family.”
