Czech Republic: Five physically injured after Hitler is praised in local restaurant
A physical conflict occurred between two different groups of people on the evening of Saturday, 8 October in a restaurant in the village of Chotutice near Český Brod (Kolín district). According to eyewitnesses, the conflict happened after a local customer declared he was sorry that Adolf Hitler hadn't managed to fully implement his "solution" for the "Romani question".
Zdeněk Chalupa, spokesperson for the Regional Police, confirmed to news server iDNES.cz that "On Saturday at 20:20 we received a report of an incident that happened in the village of Chotutice in the Kolín district. The incident culminated in a physical assault during which several people suffered injuries. Currently we are documenting and investigating the entire incident."
"As some of those involved in the incident were driving away, one of them stuck his hand out of the vehicle and fired a weapon in the air," the police spokesperson told iDNES.cz. He said the weapon was a gas pistol and that the shot was intended as a warning.
Nobody was struck by the gunshot. "Those involved face prosecution, probably the charges will be felony assault or disorderly conduct," Chalupa said.
