This is the moment a sore loser lashed out at the winner of a beauty pageant after being narrowly pipped to the crown.
The pageant was held as part of carnival celebrations in the northern Colombian town of San Pedro last month (February).
Local media named the pageant winner as Zharick Manjarres, who was crowned Carnival Queen and took home prize money of COP 4million, the equivalent of around £700.

The miffed runner-up was identified as Milagro Rodriguez, who was awarded COP 1.5m for coming second.
Footage shows how seething Rodriguez, in a pink dress, lashed out at newly-crowned Zharick, in a green dress, on stage and had to be held back by event officials.
The clip showed how water was spilled as a man confronted the sore loser over her petulance.
Eventually, a woman in a silver dress restrains riled Rodriguez in a bear hug to stop her from going after her rival.
Following the incident, pageant officials decided not to penalise the runner-up for her actions.
She was eventually calmed down and smiled as she posed next to officials with her prize cheque a short while later.
