Drunk American tourist's Nazi salute sparks German punch-up

Nazi Salutes Land Chinese Tourists in Hot Water in Germany

Police say a drunken American man was punched by a passer-by as he gave the stiff-armed Nazi salute multiple times in downtown Dresden.

The incident occurred early Saturday morning, apparently after a night of drinking.

It was revealed that he was also being investigated by authorities for the use of insignia of unconstitutional organizations, which includes Nazi symbols.

The tourist was identified only as a 41-year-old American man who was "severely drunk", according to police. The tourist, who sustained minor injuries, was apprehended by police, although the attacker fled the scene and remains at large.


The U.S. tourist was slightly injured, the report said, adding that a test by the police showed that the Hitler-salute giver had alcohol blood level of 0.276 percent.

Just last week, a pair of Chinese tourists were arrested for taking photographs of themselves giving the Nazi salute in front of the Reichstag in Berlin.

Germany outlawed the salute after World War II, along with Holocaust denial and other symbols and signals associated with the Nazis. They were later freed after posting a 500 Euro bail.

But as one British paper pointed out, those who know the history of the Nazi salute should know not to do it.
