Michael Bay Attacked on Set of "Transformers 4"

Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(NEW YORK) --  Transformers director Michael Bay knows a thing or two about action-adventure movies, but he encountered some real-life drama on the Hong Kong set of Transformers: The Age of Extinction this week.

The director offered up some details in the blog section of his official website Thursday in response to media reports that he was attacked while working on the fourth Transformers flick./>/>

Bay wrote, "Yes, some drugged up guys were being belligerent asses to my crew for hours in the morning of our first shoot day in Hong Kong."  He added, "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."

Bay told the man that every vendor in the area got paid a "fair price" for allowing the film crew to shoot there.  However, the man said he "wanted four times that amount," but Bay refused to be extorted.

An hour later, Bay said the man returned holding an air conditioning unit.  The director explained, "He walked right up to me and tried to smack my face, but I ducked, threw the air unit on the floor and pushed him away."/>/>/>/>

Bay added, "That's when the security jumped on him.  But it took seven big guys to subdue him.  It was like a Zombie in Brad Pitt's movie World War Z -- he lifted seven guys up and tried to bite them."

Bay noted that Hong Kong police in riot gear responded to the scene and arrested four individuals for assaulting officers.  Bay said that aside from that incident, he and the crew "had a great day of shooting."/>/>
