Subway Cuts Ties With Jared After FBI Raids His House In Child Porn Case

(CNN) – A raid at the Indiana home of longtime Subway pitchman Jared Fogle shocked neighbors as they watched authorities cart off computers and other electronics.

Investigators had little to say about the raid, but the sandwich chain said it might be linked to the earlier arrest of someone who used to work for Fogle.

“The only thing I ever see around his home are happy people doing their yard, waving,” neighbor Catherine Hoffman told CNN affiliate WTHR-TV in Indianapolis. “So, I’m shocked and upset, of course, and saddened. A great figure in our community.”

Fogle’s attorney, Ron Elberger, said his client has not been arrested or charged with any crime.

But that didn’t stop Subway from parting ways with him.

“Subway and Jared Fogle have mutually agreed to suspend their relationship due to the current investigation,” a Subway spokesman said in a statement. “Jared continues to cooperate with authorities, and he expects no actions to be forthcoming. Both Jared and Subway agree that this was the appropriate step to take.”

Well this was the big news yesterday, the FBI raiding the Subway guy’s house, and no shock today they decide to cut ties with him.  Even if hes not found guilty of anything as a brand you just cant be associated with anybody with those kind of headlines.

And maybe its just me, but Im the type of guy who generally believes where there is smoke there is fire in cases like this.  Maybe not, time will tell.

In the mean time I think Subway should go back to this guy as their spokesman:
