BUTLER, Pa. (KDKA) – A felony warrant has been issued for a 20-year-old recently arrested in connection with riots in Pittsburgh. Police say a day after those riots, Jordan Erdos used social media to “initiate” violence at protests in Butler.
Butler City Police say their investigation into protests that turned violent on May 31 — where eight arrests were made — has led a judge to issue a warrant for Erdos.READ MORE: Local Pediatricians Offer Health Advice For Trick-Or-Treating This Halloween
