Ex-Subway spokesman and disgraced Indiana sex offender Jared Fogle was on the receiving end of a prison beat-down.
Fogle was sentenced to jail for possessing child pornography and having sex with underage prostitutes in Nov. 2015.
He was attacked on the recreation yard at Englewood prison in Colorado Jan. 29 by fellow inmate, Steven Nigg, 60, according to TMZ.
The convicted pedophile suffered a swollen face, scratched neck and bloody nose from Nigg -- who’s in jail for a weapons conviction related to a decades-old Arizona crime spree. The 60-year-old walked away untouched, save for a cut-up hand, and was sent to solitary confinement.
Nigg’s family told TMZ that he was angry so many pedophiles are placed in low security prison and they’re not surprised it happened.
Nigg is scheduled for parole in 2024 and initially served time from 1976 to 1990 when he and an partner robbed a Maricopa County motel clerk, two convenience stores and a gas station, according to New York Daily News.
He then moved to Wausau, Wisconsin and started working in a consignment shop. When his father died, he inherited his estate -- which included 120 firearms.
In a twist of fate, Nigg sold two guns to a private investigator hired by his stepmother, which led to his arrest and imprisonment.
“We have some sympathy for Mr. Nigg, whose dangerous past caught up with him decades after he had seemingly done some work to rehabilitate himself,” wrote Judge William C. Griesbach. “Nonetheless, the [Armed Career Criminal Act] is the law of the land.”
Fogle’s attorney had no comment on the issue.
