A 41-year-old American was punched and injured by a passerby on Saturday in downtown Dresden, Germany, after repeatedly giving the Nazi salute. At the police station, the man registered a 0.276 percent blood alcohol level.
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 American is now under investigation for violating Germany's blasphemy laws which are very strict when it comes to anything related to Nazi symbolism.

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. Germany outlawed the salute after World War II, along with Holocaust denial and other symbols and signals associated with the Nazis.
