Pedophile sandwich pitchman Jared Fogle was pummeled by a fellow inmate in a prison smackdown, according to a report.
The former Subway hawker, who is serving a 16-year sentence at Colorado’s Englewood FCI, was tackled and punched in the face by a 60-year-old armed robber, TMZ reported.
Steven Nigg, 60, who is serving time on gun charges, left Fogle with a bloody nose, swollen face and scratches on his neck after the recreation yard beatdown on Jan. 29, the site reported.
Nigg, who suffered a small cut on his hand, unleashed his barrage after reaching his boiling point over the number of child sex predators housed in the low-security facility, his relatives told TMZ.
He was punished for his vigilante vengeance with a stint in solitary.
Fogle, a father of two whose claims he lost 200 pounds by eating Subway foot-longs led to his hiring as the company’s pitchman, confessed to having sex with teenaged prostitutes.
He has been stress-eating behind bars amid threats and taunts – called “Chomo,” short for child molester – and has gained about 30 pounds.
Fogle was recently slapped by an inmate who had called him a “dirty child rapist,” a recently released prisoner said.
His earliest possible release date is July 11, 2029.
