Michael Bay Gives Play-By-Play Of How He Got Attacked By 'Drugged Up' Guys on Transformers Set!

You can't script an attack this crazy!

Director Michael Bay is talking for the first time since being assaulted in Hong Kong while filming Transformers 4!

The Hollywood heavy-hitter took to his personal blog to get the facts straight about what went down on the set this week. According to Bay, this was all an attempt at extortion!

It all started on their first day of shooting when the crew had to deal with a group of greedy brothers! Michael explained:

"…some drugged up guys were being belligerent asses to my crew for hours in the morning of our first shoot day in Hong Kong. One guy rolled metal carts into some of my actors trying to shake us down for thousands of dollars to not play his loud music or hit us with bricks."

The film had previously paid a fair price to all of the vendors on the street where they were shooting for their inconvenience. But the Mak brothers, as police later identified them as, wanted MORE money!

Michael put his foot down and told them that wasn't going to happen! He described the confrontation:

"I personally told this man and his friends to forget it we were not going to let him extort us. He didn’t like that answer. So an hour later he came by my crew as we were shooting, carrying a long air conditioner unit. He walked right up to me and tried to smack my face, but I ducked."

OMG! Who uses an A/C unit as a weapon?!

Security soon pounced on the guy but it took SEVEN of them to bring him down!

Bay described the assailant as being like a zombie in Brad Pitt's movie World War Z because in addition to his super strength, he actually tried to bite one of the guards!

Holy hell! That is scary!

In the end, it took 15 Hong Kong police in riot gear to take away the four men charged with the attack! They were all placed under arrest and dragged from the set.

Michael's injuries weren't serious and he refused medical attention. And as he puts it, they had a great day shooting after all of this went down!

Woah! What a way to start the work day!

    that sounds like a better story than the shit they keep churning out lately ..

    all the new release movies are crap none of them have much story i did see one called something like” get to the punch” had this andrea riseborough is in oblivion very pretty gal took me ages to work it out that she was the same gal as she had a major role in tomcruise oblivion but wasnt anywhere on the cover at all except in tiny tiny writing on the back i said to my bf i think thats the same chick we were like no way for ages … why didnt tom stic her name on the cover and that olga chick..

    most of the movies these days are just violent stories of diff people dying in horrible ways it is boring and it sucks get to the punch was ok but a bit twisty turny so i lost what was supposed to e happening it had that spunk james mcavoy in it mmmmmm
