Michael Bay was the featured speaker for Samsung TV’s presentation at the CES convention on Monday (January 6), but in the beginning of his speech, he stormed off stage after the teleprompter appeared to malfunction.

The 48-year-old Transformers director was there to talk about how the brand’s new televisions would change the way audiences could watch his films at home.

Michael Bay Confirms He Was Attacked, Reveals Fight Details

Michael Bay has confirmed that he was attacked on the set of his new film Transformers: Age of Extinction in a new blog post posted to his website.

The 48-year-old director also clarified the reports going around about what went down on the Hong Kong set.

“Yes, the story is being passed around is not all true!” Michael 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. 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.”

“Every vendor where we shot got paid a fair price for our inconvenience, but he wanted four times that amount,” he added. “I personally told this man and his friends to forget it we were not going to let him extort us. He didn’t like that answer. So an hour later he came by my crew as we were shooting, carrying a long air conditioner unit. 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. 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. He actually bit into one of the guards Nike shoe, insane. Thank god it was an Air Max, the bubble popped, but the toe was saved.”

“Then it took fifteen Hong Kong cops in riot gear to deal with these punks. In all, four guys were arrested for assaulting the officers,” Michael continued. “After that, we had a great day shooting here in Hong Kong.”

Glad everyone is safe after the scary incident!
