  • Drunk US tourist beaten up after giving Nazi salute in Germany

The 41-year-old American suffered minor injuries in the assault in the east German city which happened on Saturday at 8.15am.

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.

According to police records, the American tourist was extremely intoxicated, as indicated by a high blood alcohol level.

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.

He was badly, badly concussed after those rounds. The ropes kept him up multiple times. They know what happened last week.

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's the second time in August that tourists have gotten themselves into legal trouble for giving the Nazi salute. A conviction can carry a prison sentence of up to three years, although courts often impose fines instead. The two tourists were fined almost $600 each but were permitted to leave the country with their tour group, police said.

This month the Switzerland Supreme Court convicted a man who was photographed giving the Nazi salute in front of a synagogue in Geneva.
