Peruvian Model Lacey Zamudio's Nude Photos Spark Controversy

Peruvian model Lacey Zamudio, also known as Leysi Suárez, is facing a criminal investigation for posing nude while straddling a horse, using Peru's red and white national flag as a saddle.

The photo, which appeared on the cover of DFarandula magazine, has caused a political uproar as Peru prepares to celebrate it's independence from Spain on Monday.

Defense Minster Antero Flores filed a complaint against Zamudio on Thusday.  "These are patriotic symbols that demand total respect, and using them improperly requires punishment," Flores old reporters. "This is an offense."

Zamudio, who's main job is a dancer for the band Alma Bella, or Beautiful Soul, says she has committed no crime. "I love Peru and show it with my body and soul."

If convicted, the patriotic model could face up to four years in prison.
