Canadian Tourist Arrested For Giving Nazi Salute Outside Reichstag

A 30-year old Canadian tourist was arrested on Saturday for posing for a photograph while giving the infamous Nazi salute...outside the Reichstag in Berlin, according to the Telegraph.

Berlin police arrived on the scene within seconds, handcuffed him and took his camera's memory card. The pose is a chargeable offense of up to six months in prison, yet the man was freed after being held in custody for several hours.

Three years ago, a British businessman was arrested at the Cologne airport after he gave the salute to a rental car official. Back in March, Sandra Bullock's ex-husband, Jesse James, was gripped by scandal after he posed for photos with a Hitler-esque mustache and raising his arm.
