According to officials in Germany, the incident happened at around 8:15 a.m. local time Saturday outside a café in the center of Dresden in eastern Germany.

An American tourist in Germany has been punched after drunkenly giving a nazi salute multiple times on the streets of Dresden, Germany.

The police have launched a procedure for the use of "symbols of unconstitutional organizations" by the tourist. He was placed under investigation for violating German laws against the display of Nazi symbols or slogans.

Although there may be some high surf on the coastline this week, the heavy rains and winds of the storm will stay well offshore. It is not expected to develop into a hurricane, as conditions will not be conducive for such development, AccuWeather reports.

The unnamed 41-year-old American tourist was heavily intoxicated, according to police. That attacker reportedly fled the scene and police are now looking for him to lay charges for causing bodily harm. The insignia in question prompted a separate police investigation. A week earlier, two tourists were arrested for taking photos of themselves in front of Berlin's Reichstag building while making the gesture. They were released after posting bond of €500, almost $600, each.

While residents of Germany and Austria, as well as many of their European neighbors, are educated on the laws forbidding Nazi symbols and expressions, it's not clear if Chinese tourists are aware of the post-1945 statutes.

"PSA to tourists: Don't do a Nazi salute in Germany", the Metro's Jen Mills wrote.
