(Radio.com) Bad touch, indeed. Two members of the Bloodhound Gang are under investigation in Russia for stuffing the country's national flag down their pants at a show in the Ukraine, according to the New York Daily News.

Bassist Jared Hennegan and singer James Moyer Franks, best known for their band's 1999 song "Bad Touch," are accused of "inciting hatred and enmity."

A statement released by the Russian Investigative Committee explains that, "According to the findings of the comprehensive psycho-linguistic forensic examination, Hennegan's actions committed with the use of the national flag of Russia are derogatory in nature and can be perceived as a desecration of a national symbol."

The statement accuses the two of entering "a criminal plot aimed at disgracing Russian citizens and formed a criminal group to that end."

The statement also revealed that the Russian Investigative Committee is considering putting Hennegan and Franks on a wanted list. more on this story
