Michael Bay Attacked on Transformers Set

The BBC is reporting that Michael Bay has been attacked on the set of Transformers: Age of Extinction, on the set in Hong Kong.

Apparently two men are accused of blackmail and assault after they demanded money from the crew. Bay sustained injuries to the right side of the face.

The BBC states:

The two men approached Mr Bay on the set during filming, a police spokeswoman told Reuters.

One of them demanded payment of HK$100,000 ($12,900; £8,030).

As the discussion continued, the man assaulted Mr Bay and also attacked three police officers who tried to intervene, police say.

The officers received treatment at hospital for minor injuries.

Police also arrested a third man at the scene.
