Blackmailing the TF 4 film crew

Post by Time Traveller »

Here's an interesting tidbit:
Apparently, while filming in Hong Kong, two brothers attempted to blackmail the film crew to not disrupt filming with noise and music, after agreeing earlier to a compensation price for being quiet for the day. Michael Bay suffered "minor injuries to his face". (He later suffered much greater injuries to his face during the Samsung press conference). Now the brothers are going to jail for a couple years.... must have been good music to be worth that!

So why throw in the article the information about a "rough childhood" & "attempted suicide"? It has no relevance to the case at hand and is pretty thin and poor on the defense's part to even play those cards. Pretty sure after the officer was assaulted those guys got a royal police beat down :lol: .

I raised an eyebrow about that too. Maybe it was to demonstrate on how poor of a defense they had?
