The attackers wanted money...
Reuters reports that Michael Bay was attacked and injured earlier today in Hong Kong on the set of Transformers 4. Two brothers with the last name of Mak (27 and 27) approached Bay and the younger brother demanded a payment of HK$100,000 ($12,900). It's unknown why they asked for the money.
As the confrontation continued, the elder brother assaulted Bay. He then attacked three police officers who tried to stop it. The younger brother was arrested on suspicion of blackmail and assault and the older was arrested on suspicion of assault.
Bay suffered injuries to the right side of his face but didn't seek treatment. It's not believed that the injuries were serious. Filming continued after the incident. The three police officers were treated at a hospital for minor injures. The younger Mak brother said he didn't feel well and asked to be taken for treatment.
A man named Chan was also arrested at the scene. All three are in custody and police are investigating.
