American tourist is beaten up after performing Nazi salute in Germany

US tourist punched for drunken Nazi salute in Germany

A drunken American who gave the stiff-armed Nazi salute several times in Dresden was injured when he was punched by a passer-by.

The 41-year-old, who is not yet identified (internet sleuths get on it!), suffered minor injuries in the 8:15 a.m. Saturday assault, according to police. At the police station, the man registered a 0.276 percent blood alcohol level. His assailant ran away after the attack, and is wanted by police for causing bodily harm to his victim.

The American is now under investigation for violating Germany's blasphemy laws which are very strict when it comes to anything related to Nazi symbolism.

The American citizen - whose identity is now being withheld - is being investigated for violating German law that strictly forbids the use of Nazi symbols. The name of the tourist was withheld for privacy reasons.




In Germany, it is unlawful to show any Nazi images or mottos, including giving the "Heil Hitler" salute.

It is illegal to display symbols of Nazism in Germany.

One week ago, two Chinese tourists were fined some $600 apiece after giving Nazi salutes outside of the Reichstag, a historic edifice in Berlin.
