ATTACKED By Crazy Dude

Wielding Air Conditioner

1016-michael-bay-transformers
Famed director Michael Bay almost got clobbered by what appears to be a drugged out crazy who swung an air conditioner at his head on the set of "Transformers 4."

The incident occurred today in Hong Kong.  The attacker somehow made it on the set, accosted several members and then set his sights on Bay.  When Bay realized what was up, he saw the crazy man swinging an air conditioner right at his noggin. 

Bay then wrestled the unit out of the attacker's hands and security quickly subdued him.

There are reports out that Bay was injured by 2 men on the set -- untrue.

If it was coming toward his head, the A/C unit must have been set on high.

TMZ, we need you to paint a word picture of how a person goes about SWINGING AN AIR CONDITIONER. They are boxy and very heavy - now how do you go about SWINGING something so boxy and heavy.
.
Perhaps you folks just got confused and this man was swinging a can of AIR FRESHNER IN A PLASTIC BAG? Please clarify because quite frankly, this like most of your stories sound like total bull shyte.
.
SO, how does one "swing" an air conditioner? Discuss.

That wasn't just ANY crazy, it was Shia "The Beef". Guess that's what happens when the world finds out that Giant Robots are better actors than you are.

I'm from Hong Kong, and this is only part of the story.

So what happened was their were shooting the movie in a mall, and they had made arrangements with the mall's management and paid a sum for renting out the mall for their shooting. They also gave cheques to the stores in the mall, as a compensation during the movie shoot. Now one of the shops was closed at the time, and did not receive the cheque. The brothers own the shop that was closed, so they didn't receive the cheque. Nearby shops said that this shop is usually closed, and rarely open for business.

So during the day of the movie shoot the brothers "opened shop" and were infuriated and had a hissy fit, and blocked the way of the shoot and demanded $100,000HKD as compensation because they can't do business while they are shooting.

The staff refused, and eventually things got physical and Michael bay got attacked. Though the news never mentioned whether he is whacked by an air con.

3 people got arrested, the 2 brothers, and someone else who was in the shop, turns out hes a wanted felon by the authorities.
