When one such drunken dumbass, an American, started throwing out the stiff-armed Nazi salute in downtown Dresden, he got what he deserved: a swift punch.

It is not the first time a tourist in Germany has run afoul of the country's strict anti-Nazi laws.

The incident involving the 41-year-old male tourist and a passerby unfolded just after 8 a.m. Saturday in Dresden, the Associated Press reported. A police test showed that he was heavily intoxicated with a blood alcohol level of 0.276 percent.

Recent missile tests have put global attention on North Korea, a country vying to be the world's next nuclear power. North Korea dominated the conversation between the two leaders, according to a readout of the call.


The assailant, who fled the scene and has yet to be tracked down, is also being sought by police and may be questioned for his actions. 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.

The tourists received a relatively light punishment, as displaying such gestures or brandishing certain Nazi memorabilia can result in a prison sentence of up to three years in Germany. The tourists were released after each posted bail, roughly $589 a piece.
