A man left two paramedics in hospital today after biting one on the leg.
Another ambulance worker was slightly injured when he was later headbutted by the man in Clontarf Garda station.
The paramedics from Dublin Fire Brigade were called to a disturbance at the take-away in Fairview Strand, north Dublin at around 4am.
Gardaí also arrived at the scene around the same time to find the man foaming at the mouth and threatening violence.
The man, suspected of being intoxicated, turned on one of the ambulance workers and bit him on the leg, according to Dublin Fire Brigade.
After gardaí were forced to restrain him and bring him to Clontarf Garda station, paramedics were again called out at around 5am to bring the man to hospital.
Another disturbance erupted during which a paramedic was headbutted as he attempted to take the man for medical help.
Both ambulance workers have since been released from hospital and their injuries are not serious.
Gardaí are expected to question the man when he is released from medical care.
