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.

In the run-up to shooting Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Megan Fox told a British magazine that director Michael Bay "wants to be like Hitler on his sets" and that he's "a nightmare to work for."
A few months later, she got her walking papers. But it wasn't Bay who made the call, the director says.
"She was in a different world, on her BlackBerry. You gotta stay focused," Bay tells the July issue of GQ, on newsstands Tuesday. "And you know, the Hitler thing. Steven said, 'Fire her right now.' "

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."
