A drug-crazed maniac attacked TRANSFORMERS 4: AGE OF EXTINCTION director MICHAEL BAY with an air conditioner!
Show biz bible Variety reported that according to a Paramount spokesman, a man (“allegedly under the influence of narcotics)”, stormed on set and viciously swung an air conditioner unit at Bay’s head.
Bay quickly evaded the cooling unit, then “ducked and wrested the air conditioner from his attacker, preventing what could have been a serious accident.”
Earlier reports suggested the director had been attacked by two brothers in Quarry Bay, where "Transformers 4" starring Mark Wahlberg is currently shooting.
“Contrary to several erroneous news reports made today, Bay did not get hurt in a fight on set,” Paramount said.
After the man was subdued by Bay, Paramount stated, that police scuffled with the air conditioning wielding suspect as well as two other assailants before arresting the three men.
No cast or crew members were injured in the incident.
Nor was Bay.
All hail Optimus Prime!
