According to TMZ, inmate Steven Nigg, 60, went after Fogle in the rec yard at Englewood Prison in Colorado on Jan. 29. Nigg pushed Fogle to the ground and then punched him in the face.
Fogle ended up with a bloody nose, swollen face and scratches on his neck. Nigg, who’s serving time for a weapons charge, suffered a small cut on his left hand. He was put in solitary confinement after the incident.
TMZ reported that Nigg’s family said the inmate was upset because there were so many child sex predators assigned to the facility.
Fogle was sentenced to more than 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to charges of child pornography and engaging in sex with minors. His attorneys have appealed the sentence.
