Hollywood director Michael Bay was attacked and slightly injured Thursday on the set of the fourth installment of the Transformers movie series currently filming in Hong Kong, police said.
A Hong Kong police spokeswoman said two brothers surnamed Mak who own a shop near the film set approached Bay and demanded 100,000 Hong Kong dollars ($13,000).
When Bay refused to pay, they assaulted him, she said. The brothers also allegedly assaulted three police officers who were called to the set.

Megan Fox famously feuded with Transformers director Michael Bay, once saying, "He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is."
Fox's former costar Shia LaBeouf explains the actress, 25, struggled with the "sex-driven role" and bristled under suddenly being "told she was the sexiest woman in America."
"She had a hard time accepting it," LaBeouf, 24, tells the Los Angeles Times. "Mike films women in a way that appeals to a 16-year-old's sexuality. It's summer. It's Michael's style."
