An American tourist was punched by a passerby in Germany for displaying a Nazi salute several times.

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.

On 5 August, two Chinese tourists were caught taking photos of themselves making the gesture in front of Berlin's Reichstag building. The incident took place at 8:15 a.m. local time, police said.

The American also had insignia of "unconstitutional organizations, which includes Nazi symbols", Deutsche Welle reported. According to official accounts, the unknown attacker fled the scene and is now being sought for causing bodily harm.

Axar Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal and Shardul Thakur have also been called upon in the absence of the prime bowlers. Kuldeep Yadav, who was a part of India's team that toured West Indies recently has also been retained.


Police say that the 41-year-old tourist had "an extremely high blood alcohol level", according to the Associated Press.

The Dresden incident occurred just a week after two Chinese tourists were detained for giving Nazi salutes outside Berlin's Reichstag, once home to the Imperial Diet. The duo was arrested but was eventually released after paying a fine of about $1,000.

Germany criminal code inflicts heavy punishment against the uses of Nazi symbols and images, and offenders may carry up to three years in prison.
