|New pen pals meet for the first time in Bridgeport|
The judge, learning of the arrival of the former president, granted Fogle sixty minutes in which to meet with him.
Outside the courthouse, a small contingent of secret service men accompanied President Bush as he walked through the small crowd that had gathered to shout obscenities at Fogle. When some of those gathered saw the former president, they started hollering obscenities at him instead of waiting for Jared and were quickly silenced by secret servicemen with high powered water pistols. Just as Fogle and Bush were introduced and things were settling down, the Jimmy John's delivery man came rushing up and was tackled before he got close to where Jared and the President were standing, shaking hands.
"Hey, was that one of those Jimmy John guys?" Bush asked, grinning. "I've seen that on TV, but didn't believe it."
"Yeah," answered Fogle. "I like that concept of fast delivery! The subs ain't bad either. I've got my name in for when I get out of the slammer. I'd like to work for them."
The two talked briefly and exchanged addresses. They then posed for a picture and Jared was hauled away by court deputies.
When asked by OFF THE WALL NEWS why he consented to be Fogle's pen pal, the former President flashed his signature big grin and replied with his head bobbing, "Hey, we all make mistakes, right?" He was then whisked away in his limo, reportedly off to find a Jimmy Johns.
