A video appears to show a man being tasered by a police officer in McDonald's after a rowdy incident in the fast-food restaurant in Bethnal Green, London.
In the clip, which is believed to have been recorded overnight, several people shout and argue while apparently standing in the queue to be served.
While four officers appear to be attempting to restore order, a man shouts: "I'm not moving, I'm not moving."
An officer tries to hold back a tall man who steps forward towards him, then a second officer pushes him to the side.
Trying to restrain another man, a police officer suddenly tugs him down and onto the floor, prompting a woman to start shrieking and hit the cop.
"Get off! Get off!" a male voice shouts above the carnage.
Meanwhile, a female customer trying to leave with her food is pushed forwards onto a table in the scuffle, before regaining her balance and making a safe exit.
The fight on the floor appears to escalate and police seem to be unable to control the rowdy group, while other people film the commotion on their phones.

"Behave yourself!" a police officer says to a woman who seems to keep pushing her way back into the fight.
A large man in a white T-shirt appears to be zapped with a taser and there is a crackling sound.
"You don't need to taser him, mate," says a male voice.
A police officer with a yellow taser in his hand then comes into a view and a customer appears to be arguing that it shouldn't be used.
"Why are you tasering him, man?"
The chaotic clip ends as a spectator says: "I only came in here for a f***ing chicken sandwich."
Unsurprisingly, the footage has garnered a lot of attention with more than 50,000 views since it was uploaded on Twitter by @CrimeLdn in the early hours this morning.
Some viewers speculated that the unruly customers may have been intoxicated, while others said they hoped they got arrested.
Daily Star Online has approached the Metropolitan Police for comment.
