LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Transformers" director Michael Bay has been sued by two men who claim they were pistol-whipped by his security guard outside a trendy nightclub.

The complaint, for battery and negligence, was filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court by Joshua Stewart and Paul Klimczak. The men say that exactly two years ago they were struck in their heads with a handgun by Bay's unidentified security guard after being booted from Kiss nightclub adjacent to Beso restaurant in Hollywood.

They were treated at a hospital for broken teeth and bones, according to the lawsuit. Bay is not claimed to have participated in the attack but he's been sued for negligence along with the club's owners because the security guard was allegedly under his control at the time of the incident.

An email to Bay's publicist was not immediately returned.
