PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- A Butler County man is going to jail for attacking another man during the riot that broke out near PPG Paints Arena a year ago.

Jordan Erdos, of Butler, pleaded guilty earlier this month to one count each of simple assault, felony riot, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct.

On Tuesday, a judge sentenced Erdos to six to 12 months in Allegheny County Jail.

Erdos will also have to serve two years of probation.

Police say video was captured showing Erdos throwing things at officers, breaking into stores, kicking a man and damaging a police car.

Erdos was also charged in connection with riots that broke out last year in Diamond Park in Butler County. Police say he used social media to "initiate" violence at protest.
