This is what you call karma in the best way possible.
Disgraced Subway pitchman Jared Fogle is said to be recovering from a brutal prison yard beating that’s left the admitted sex offender with facial bruising, a bloodied nose and neck abrasions, PEOPLE has learned.
The Jan. 29 attack on Fogle took place in the recreation yard at Colorado’s Englewood Prison, according to a document supplied by the family of Steven Nigg, 60, the inmate who allegedly instigated the assault.
“He had to hit him. That’s how the whole thing started,” Jimmy Nigg, 59, who sees his brother weekly, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “He just can’t be around child molesters. He doesn’t like them.”
Fogle’s pummeling came just two months into the former sandwich pitchman’s nearly 16-year sentence for possessing child pornography and traveling across state lines to have sex with a minor.
Nigg allegedly knocked Fogle to the ground before unleashing a barrage of punches to the 38-year-old’s face, records show.
