This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
Looks like prison became a little less scary for Jared Fogle!
As you may recall, the former Subway spokesperson was the subject of a prison beatdown in January after his fellow inmate Steven Nigg decided he was NOT happy about sharing a prison with a child sex predator.
However, it was reported on Tuesday that the weight loss pitchman's jail yard bully has since been removed from the facility and transferred to a different prison hundreds of miles away. Apparently, you can still get the celebrity treatment even in the big house!
Sources dished to TMZ that when officials spoke with Nigg about the incident, he made it perfectly clear that he had every intention to beat up the 38-year-old again as he has an INTENSE hatred towards child molesters. Oof!
Reportedly, in order to secure Jared's safety, the prison officials decided to transfer Steven to an Oklahoma facility which is 700 miles away from the Englewood Prison in Colorado where the controversial celeb currently resides.
What, you couldn't just put the guy in a different part of the prison? We have a feeling this may bite Fogle in the butt down the line…
