German police say a drunken American male tourist was punched by a passer-by as he gave the stiff-armed Nazi salute multiple times in downtown Dresden. At the police station, the man registered a 0.276 percent blood alcohol level.

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.
