SARASOTA, Fla. — A woman in Florida claims she wore the FBI wire to record phone conversations with the man known as the “Subway Guy,” Jared Fogle.
The Sarasota woman who asked WWSB not to identify her said she spoke with Fogle on numerous occasions beginning about 10 years ago.
The woman, who is a former journalist, told WWSB Fogle frequently made inappropriate remarks when speaking with her.
“He said something to me when we were off camera and that really stuck with me,” the woman told WWSB. “I thought to myself, ‘did he really say that to me?'”
She decided to notify the FBI after hearing his alarming comments.
After she contacted the FBI, the woman said the agency asked her to record their phone conversations.
“It was the right thing to do, and I was able to do it and I have fortitude to do it. That’s the main reason I did this,” she told WWSB.
Fogle has not been charged with any crime. His attorney, Ron Elberger, told WWSB that he has never heard the allegation before and called it, “an unrealistic fabrication.”
The FBI seized electronics from Fogle’s home Tuesday, just two months after the executive director of Fogle’s foundation was charged with multiple counts of producing and possessing child pornography.
