Michael Bay was assaulted yesterday in Hong Kong when two men approached the director during the filming of Transformers 4.
According to a police statement given to Reuters, the attackers were siblings who demanded $12,900 from Bay.
When an argument subsequently broke out, one of the men struck Bay in the face and then tried to fight off a trio of officers who arrived on the scene.
But the brothers were eventually apprehended and arrested on suspicion of blackmail and assault.
Bay sustained injured to is face, but resumed shooting shortly after the incident. He did not require hospitalization.
The director is a controversial figure around Hollywood, with Megan Fox once comparing Bay to Hitler, but no one would say he deserves to be the victim of violence. We send him our best wishes.
