The man who reportedly attacked disgraced sandwich pitchman Jared Fogle last year says he has no regrets for pummeling the convicted pedophile.

In a letter to TMZ, Steve Nigg said he attacked Fogle in January 2016 and explained the reason behind his attack.

"Jared is their hero," Nigg said of the pedophiles in the Colorado prison where Fogle is serving his nearly 16-year sentence. "You would not believe how arrogant Jared was. He hired bodyguards and the other child molesters looked at him as if he was a god."

He added in the letter, "I have no regrets." According to TMZ, Nigg was moved to an Oklahoma prison.
