American Tourist In Germany Does Nazi Salute, Gets Beaten Up

A drunk American man was punched as he gave a Nazi salute in the German city of Dresden, police said.

Public displays of Nazi symbols like the swastika or gestures like the "Heil Hitler" salute have been banned in Germany since the end of World War II.

The incident took place in the eastern German city of Dresden on Saturday morning, German media report, citing local police.

His attacker fled the scene and is being sought for causing bodily harm.

Fabregas was booked for sarcastically applauding Pawson's decision to give a free-kick against him and much worse was to follow. Ignoring the obvious opportunity to launch a cross into the Chelsea area, the visitors played a free-kick short.

The 41-year-old American tourist suffered minor injuries as a result of the assault.

The American also had insignia of "unconstitutional organizations, which includes Nazi symbols", Deutsche Welle reported. At the police station, the man registered a 0.276 percent blood alcohol level. Germany has strict privacy laws around releasing the identities of individuals involved in criminal cases, and police on Sunday gave no information on his background.

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. They were later freed after posting a 500 Euro bail.
