Drunken American probed for Nazi salute in Germany, police say

Drunken American probed for Nazi salute in Germany, police say

The 41-year-old man "was very drunk" early Saturday morning when he made the "Hitler greeting" at a bar in the Neustadt district of Dresden, deputy police chief Lutz Milker said. At the police station, the man registered a 0.276 percent blood alcohol level.

He was punched by a bystander, who at that point fled the scene and is being looked for by police for causing real damage.

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

Police said the US national is under investigation for violating German laws prohibiting Nazi symbols and that they are still seeking the passerby for causing personal injury, according to the Associated Press.

According to hospital records, 7 children died on Friday, 23 died on Thursday, 9 on Wednesday, and 12 on Tuesday, 9 on Monday. The Hindustan Times newspaper on Saturday described chaotic scenes at the hospital as oxygen supply was disrupted.

Police would not identify the man, in accordance with German law, but said he was cited for making the salute, which is illegal in Germany.

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 released after each posted bail of 500 euros, or almost $600.
