Assault With a Deadly Weapon? Nope, Just a Milkshake

Call it the great milkshake caper.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office is looking for the motorists who tossed a milkshake out the window of a sport utility vehicle, hitting a bicyclist in the chest.

Investigators weren’t getting any breaks in the February case, so they decided Thursday to release video of the attack, a department spokesman said.

Charles Bard, 53, of DeLand, was riding on Julian Street near Minnesota Avenue on Feb. 23 about 4:20 p.m. when someone riding in an approaching black SUV tossed the shake – apparently vanilla – at him, investigators said. The location is north of Dubsdread Golf Course, near Interstate 4.

The paper cup sailed through the air and hit Bard’s chest with a thunk, video from a camera mounted on his bike helmet shows. Bard was not hurt, but he wants to press charges, a sheriff’s report states.
