Arraignments began on Monday for some of the 114 people arrested after weekend violence triggered by a white supremacist group's march along the sidewalks of a racially mixed neighborhood. A melee broke out Saturday when protesters confronted members of the National Socialist Movement who had gathered at a city park. "They do have a right to walk on the Toledo sidewalks," Mayor Jack Ford said Sunday. An angry mob, some of them gang members, threw baseball-sized rocks at police, vandalized vehicles and stores, and set fire to a bar. More than 100 people were arrested and one officer was seriously injured. The march was called off after the rioting started.
