July 7, 2008 12:00:00 AM PDT
Museum officials are trying to decide what to do with a headless wax figure of Adolf Hitler, after a man tore it off at Madame Tussaud's Museum in Germany. Police say the 41-year-old suspect shoved aside museum employees to get to the wax figure, injuring one of them.

He was taken into custody on Saturday and faces charges of damaging property and bodily harm.

The presence of the Nazi dictator's figure in the new museum has led to criticism in the German media.

The damaged figure has been removed for now.
