Jared the Subway Guy Has House Raided on Kiddie Porn Charges

Wow, if I worked for a company that only last year was issuing joyful press releases about how they were phasing out a chemical frequently found in yoga mats, I'd really be crying into my flavorless Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki today.

The Zionsville, Ind. home of Jared Fogle, aka Jared from Subway, has been raided in connection with a child pornography investigation, and electronics have been removed and scanned. The executive director of the anti-childhood obesity Jared Foundation was arrested in April on child pornography charges, but Fogle himself has not been taken in, and it is not yet known if there is a direct connection. He left his home in a private vehicle at noon local time.

Best known for his early-2000s weight loss regimen (the "Subway diet") that involved eating a lot of fast food with one hand and showing off pants he no longer fit into with the other, Fogle filmed over 300 commercials for the company before gradually getting phased out for the $5 foot-long ad blitz.

The 37-year-old Hoosier is also a millionaire several times over and apparently has a coveted "black card" that enables him to eat at Subway for free in perpetuity. Pics by WTHR, the Indianapolis NBC affiliate, show the house to be a bland, suburban McMansion, although it's probably more accurate to call it a SubMansion or maybe Meatball Marinara Manor.

While we should emphasize again that Fogle has not been arrested, and that even if he were, no one is guilty until proven by a court of law, consider the comments section to this post an open forum for $5 foot-long jokes that are even more tasteless than Subway's air-filled bread.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
