Sen. Victor Hocog attempted to fight with Sen. Paul Manglona in the Senate Chamber Monday afternoon. Sergeant-at-arms Pedro Towai had to jump a chain barrier to stop Mr. Hocog from assaulting his Rota colleague.
Video sent to Kandit shows Mr. Hocog rushing Mr. Manglona, then being restrained by an officer of the chamber. Sen. Edith Deleon Guerrero and Senate President Jude Hofschneider also helped to block and calm Mr. Hocog.
The altercation occurred shortly after Mr. Manglona attempted to address the senate during the public comment period. Mr. Hofschneider cut the microphone, then recessed the senate. He then had the public gallery cleared, when the fight broke out.
The senate was in the midst of public comments aimed against proposed rules for the governance of the impeachment trial of Gov. Ralph Torres.
This is a developing story.
