German police investigate man dressed as Hitler at festival

A man dressed as Adolf Hitler raised eyebrows as he rode around in the sidecar of a Nazi-era motorcycle during a weekend festival in Germany, according to a report.

“When people dress up as Adolf Hitler, an investigation is always necessary,” a spokesman for Saxony police said Monday, according to state-owned Deutsche Welle.

The faux Führer –- sporting Hitler’s signature mustache and Nazi insignia –- was spotted in video shot at the classic motorcycle event in the city of Augustusburg near Chemnitz.

The motorcycle was being driven by another man dressed as a World War II German soldier, the footage showed.

In Germany, it is illegal to wear Nazi paraphernalia in public, so the impersonator faces possible legal action, the spokesman said.
