Earlier today, director Michael Bay was attacked on the streets of Hong Kong, where he is filming Transformers 4.
According to Reuters, two brothers, both in their late 20s, appeared on set and demanded HK$100,000 ($12,900).
The elder brother then attacked Bay as well as three police officers who tried to stop the assault. Bay was injured on the right side of his face, but did not seek treatment as he didn’t think it were serious. Instead, he continued filming.
The three officers suffered minor injuries, which were treated at a local hospital.
It’s unclear what prompted the attack, but the BBC reports that it might be over fees paid to local shops whose business might be impacted during the shoot. Both men were arrested on suspicion of assault and blackmail. A third man who was with the brothers was also arrested.
