(Newser) – The guy who attacked Jared Fogle in prison has "no regrets," according to a letter he apparently wrote that has been obtained by TMZ. The gossip site doesn't explain who the letter was written to or why (Fox News describes it as a letter "to TMZ"), but in it, Steve Nigg says Fogle is a "hero" to other pedophiles in prison. "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," writes Nigg, who was transferred from the Colorado prison to one in Oklahoma after the attack. Nigg previously said he wanted to send a message with the beating. (Read more Jared Fogle stories.)
