Toledo Mayor Jack Ford declared a state of emergency following riots in his city, triggered by a National Socialist Movement march. He also set an 8 p.m. curfew through the weekend, and asked the Highway Patrol for help. He blamed the Saturday rioting on gangs taking advantage of a volatile situation. "It's exactly what they wanted," Ford said of the group that planned the march, which was canceled because of the rioting. At least 65 people were arrested on charges including assault, vandalism, failure to obey police and failure to disperse. The white supremacists had left hours earlier, Navarre said.
