"Seig Heil" could land man in zee Jail!

A MAN who had a speech by Adolf Hitler as his ringtone could face up to three years in jail.

Police seized the 54-year-old's phone at Harburg station, near the northern city of Hamburg, after fellow train passengers, shocked by the sound of Hitler screaming, alerted police.

"It was an original speech by Adolf Hitler which ended with the phrase 'Sieg Heil'," police spokesman Ruediger Carstens said, adding that the man also had a picture of Hitler standing in front of a swastika on his phone.

Police have handed the case over to prosecutors.

Under German law, the man could face up to three years in prison or a fine.

The public display of Nazi symbols like the swastika have been banned in Germany since the end of World War II.
