Yesterday, opposition leader Juan Guaido attempted to climb over a fence around the National Assembly Building in Caracas, Venezuela.
A vote was taking place to replace him as Speaker with former Guaido supporter, Luis Parra.
A year ago, Guaido announced himself the true and only president of Venezuela under the sponsorship of US Vice-President Pence.
Maduro disagreed, due to an election verified by the international community.
More than 60% in the election favored him of a 40% plus turnout.
Only 8% of Venezuelans had heard of Guaido previously.
The struggle at the fence around the National Assembly Building took place between Guaido and security forces to keep him out.
With a wild crowd surrounding, Mr. Guaido grappled to the top of the fence and was warded off.
In the process he sustained a large rip in the seat of his trousers, which he later took selfies of, as incontrovertible evidence of his violation.
He was accompanied by US advisor Elliott Abrams, who helped sponsor his efforts to take over from Maduro last year, and who was also snarled on the fence.
Interviewed on CNN Mr. Abrams responded:
"My dingleberry was extended (thanks to Mr. Guaido and his camera we have documentary photos of this) but it's all right now."
