In an odd turn of events, director Michael Bay was attacked on the set of "Transformers: Age of Extinction" on Thursday (October 17).

According to police, two brothers who own a business in the area where the motion picture is filming approached Mr. Bay and demanded money for the loss or revenue their shop was suffering as a result of the shoot.

When the threat got them nowhere, the men then assaulted the super-director, leaving him with injuries to the right side of his face.

Bay did not seek treatment, and the perpetrators were arrested and charged with suspicion of blackmail and assault.
