Subway Suspends Relationship With Jared Fogle Amid Child-Porn Investigation

Associated Press

The statement from the company said Fogle continues to cooperate with authorities and that he expects "no actions to be forthcoming." It said both sides agreed suspending the relationship was "the appropriate step to take."

Subway sandwich chain has announced it's suspending its relationship with Jared Fogle, due to an investigation involving the spokesman.

The statement from the company said Fogle continues to cooperate with authorities and that he expects "no actions to be forthcoming." It said both sides agreed suspending the relationship was "the appropriate step to take."

The statement comes after Subway removed pages referencing Fogle from its website. Fogle's suburban Indianapolis home was raided earlier Tuesday by federal and state authorities.

Fogle became a Subway spokesman after losing 245 pounds by regularly eating Subway sandwiches.

Fogle's attorney, Ron Elberger, released a statement several hours after the raid saying that Fogle "has been cooperating, and continues to cooperate, with law enforcement in their investigation of unspecified charges, and looks forward to its conclusion."

Authorities have declined to comment on the raid at Fogle's house or describe the nature of the investigation.

Subway's previous statement said the company believes the raid "is related to a prior investigation of a former Jared Foundation employee."

In April, federal prosecutors charged 43-year-old Russell Taylor with production of child pornography and possession of child pornography. Taylor is the former head of The Jared Foundation.
