Director Michael Bay just can't seem to catch a break in Hong Kong. On Wednesday night, a Triad gang member was arrested for supposedly trying to extort money the director and his "Transformers 4" film crew. South China Morning Post reports:
Police are looking for three other racketeers in connection with the latest case, which happened on the roof of a residential block in To Kwa Wan Road at about 2.30pm on Tuesday.
The four men allegedly approached the film crew and demanded money from them as they were checking the site, according to police.
Officers were called to the scene and arrested a 35-year-old Hong Kong man. The other three suspects managed to escape. A police source said the man was a suspected triad member.
Just last week, the director nearly got smacked in the face by a "maniac" wielding an air conditioner who had tried to extort the film crew for a reported HK $100,000.
