Footage by local newspaper Periodico de Ibiza, shows a naked Irishman running down a road in Ibiza allegedly in possession of knives after fleeing hospital.
The 28-year-old was said to be under the influence of substances at the time of the incident and was originally arrested after becoming aggressive towards police officers in the town of Sant Antoni de Portmany.
He was taken to Can Misses Hospital but left his bed in A&E with just a gown on which flew off while he was being chased.
He's reported to have hit "at least three members of the staff - a security guard, a caretaker and an orderly" on his escape.
When he was eventually caught by police, it was said that the man in question was holding two knives.
