US tourist beaten for giving Hitler salute in Dresden, Germany

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

An American tourist was beaten by a local man after he made a Nazi salute in Dresden, Germany.

Police in Dresden, Germany, arrested an American tourist over the weekend for giving the Nazi salute outside a cafe on the streets of downtown.

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

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

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

Trump tells China: Probe into trade practices coming
Pyongyang this week threatened to fire missiles near the US territory of Guam during an exchange of bellicose rhetoric with Trump. It wasn't immediately clear how China would react to the move. "If China helps us, I feel a lot different towards trade".


The unnamed 41-year-old American tourist was heavily intoxicated, according to police.

Police report that his "assailant" fled the scene, and is being sought on charges, but I do hope they don't look too hard. The insignia in question prompted a separate police investigation.

It's the second time in August that tourists have gotten themselves into legal trouble for giving the Nazi salute.

An American tourist was punched by a passerby in Germany for displaying a Nazi salute several times. They were released after each posted bail of 500 euros, or almost $600.
