The convicted felon who served a platter of knuckle sandwiches to Subway sandwich perv Jared Fogle was set off in part because the hoagie pitchman hired cellblock bodyguards as protection, according to a report.
Steven Nigg — a 60-year-old armed robber serving time at the Federal Correctional Institution, Englewood, in Colorado — roughed up the disgraced pitchman, punching him “five or six times” and bloodying his nose, according to the formal report on the Jan. 29 incident.
“Jared has money and you can buy inmates to protect you — that set Steve off,” Nigg’s brother Jimmy told RadarOnline.
“He has paid protection, he had bodyguards around him. One of them or another child molester must have been the witness [to the fight].”
Fogle is serving a 15-year federal sentence in Englewood after admitting that he crossed state lines to have sex with underage girls.
Child-sex offenders are popular targets behind bars. Nigg’s relatives told TMZ that the con was enraged over the number of sex predators housed in the low-security facility.
“This isn’t the first time he’s hit a child molester, it’s just the first time he got caught,” Jimmy Nigg said.
