Orange County Sheriff's deputies released a video of a man who was struck by a milkshake thrown from the window of a passing SUV while biking home from work in Maitland.

The attack was caught on camera by the bicyclist, Charles Bard, who was filming with the camera mounted on his helmet. Bard said the attack was painful and it took the wind right out of him.

"I never expected to capture something like this," Bard said.

The video depicts Bard riding down Minnesota Avenue in Winter Park, when suddenly a dairy projectile comes from the window of a black SUV. The video also captured images of the driver and passenger.

"If someone hit me somewhere on the face it could have done damage. If it hit the handle bars it could have destabilized the bike," said Bard.

The video didn't catch the license plate number.

Deputies are asking for anyone who can identify the driver to please call the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

The driver and passenger may face battery charges if they are caught.
