One of Allegheny County's 'most wanted' arrested

| Saturday, Jan. 9, 2010, 12:00 p.m.

A man listed on the Allegheny County Sheriff's Office "Most Wanted" Web site was arrested Friday night at a Downtown bar, officials said.

Jared Erjavac, 23 of the South Side was wanted for violating the conditions of his probation and parole on a 2007 conviction for statutory sexual assault and corruption of minors.

Erjavac pleaded guilty to having sex with a 15-year-old girl when he was 21.

In recent weeks, Erjavac was charged with harassment and ethnic intimidation. He allegedly threatened to kill two bar owners and said he was a "made member" of the Genovese crime family.

Erjavac used both racial and ethnic slurs toward the bar owners, authorities said. Erjavac was arrested Friday night in a bar in the 900 block of Liberty Avenue, Downtown after a tipster called the sheriff's hotline. He was being held in the Allegheny County Jail without bond.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
