A group of Michigan fans rioted when police tried to disperse them early Tuesday, throwing rocks and bottles and injuring at least one officer and one student. Police fired at least 10 volleys of tear gas into the crowd of 5,000 to 6,000 gathered on University Street after Michigan's 71-51 loss Monday night to Duke. Police on horseback went through the crowd lining the main campus thoroughfare, trying to get them to disperse.

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. -- After two nights of racially charged riots, a small army of law enforcement officers from around the state huddled in a downtown parking lot here Wednesday, girding for another. As the sun slipped west across Lake Michigan, a group of teens, some sporting fresh scars, gathered a few blocks away, promising the officers a fight. "There's gonna be some trouble tonight," said one young man who concealed his face with his T-shirt and declined to give his name.

Police sprayed tear gas into the crowd during a Ku Klux Klan rally Saturday after a few counterdemonstrators hurled rocks at officers and rushed the door of a police station. At least five of the 1,000 anti-klan demonstrators were arrested on charges including assault. No klan members were arrested. One woman suffered a minor head injury, a man suffered a broken leg and 30 officers were treated for chemical irritation, said Police Chief Carl Ent, who defended using tear gas.

Thousands of fans went on a wild, five-hour rampage in the streets early today to celebrate Michigan's first NCAA basketball championship, leading to eight arrests, widespread property damage and several injuries. It took riot-equipped State Police, Washtenaw County deputies, city police and security officers from the University of Michigan until about 4 a.m. to control the estimated 5,000 rowdy fans who wildly celebrated Michigan's 80-79 overtime win over Seton Hall.
