The short video, posted on Twitter, shows the Barcelona ace being led out of the club whilst surrounded by a hoard of security guards.
Messi is currently enjoying some well deserved downtime on the Spanish island ahead of the new Spanish domestic season. The 32-year-old is joined by Barcelona team-mates Luis Suarez, Jordi Alba and former Blaugrana midfielder Cesc Fabregas, alongside their wives and girlfriends.
But with the mercurial forward’s holiday almost at an end, the recent footage adds an unwanted element of drama before he rejoins Ernesto Valverde’s squad.

However, a clip later posted by the same user shows Messi leaving the scene apparently unharmed.
The superstars have been staying at the Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel, which boasts of 415 ‘luxurious rooms and suites’ on its website and labels itself the No 1 open air club on the island.
Barcelona begin their defence of their La Liga crown against Athletic Bilbao on August 17th.
