A man headbutted and spat at tax officials, a court heard.
Andra Juhasz launched his attack when they tried to search his home in Kinderley Road, Wisbech.
Armed with a warrant, they knocked at the door on December 10 last year and a woman answered.
Realising who they were, Juhasz, 40, tried to shut the door in their faces.
The HMRC officers managed to enter and a struggle ensued in which Juhasz spat and headbutted one of them. He was eventually restrained on the floor and placed in handcuffs.

He appeared at Peterborough Crown Court on Monday February 22 where he was sentenced to three months in prison, suspended for 12 months.
Sergeant Jamie Cooper said: “Juhasz’s actions were completely unacceptable. People should be able to go about their lawful work without being subjected to violence.
"We take violent incidents of this nature very seriously and will do all we can to bring offenders before the courts.”
