PITTSBURGH, PA – An arrested warrant has been issued today for 28-year-old Baron Batch for 30 counts of criminal mischief involving graffiti found along the Three Rivers Heritage Trail, on the Hot Metal Bridge and on the Mon Wharf parking lot.

Total damages are estimated at $16,200.

The Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Graffiti Unit will serve the warrant within the next few days and official arrest Batch.

Batch was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the seventh round of the 2011 NFL draft.

Batch, a Texas Tech graduate, tore his ACL during a training camp practice in August 2011 and was out for the season.

On Thursday October 11, 2012 Baron ran for 22 yards on 10 attempts against the Tennessee Titans. This was his first game with more than 5 rushing attempts in the NFL.

On August 25, 2013, he was cut by the Steelers and retired from the game of football, turning down multiple calls for tryouts with other teams.
