TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - An attack on a bicyclist could lead to felony charges.

James Mundell was riding with his brother around 6:30 a.m. Monday along the Heritage Trail, where it intersects with Hunt Street. He placed a 911 call.

"Yeah, I`m on Hunt Road and there`s a bunch of drunk kids driving in a Ford Taurus, or a Mercury Sable - threw something, hit me in the face! (They) busted my face! They`re sitting, hanging out the window like 3 of them,” Mundell said in the 911 call.

“I thought it was a two-ounce liquor bottle,” Mundell told News 10. “One of them two-ounce mini bottles. It went off in the ditch!”

Whatever the object, the sheriff is investigating and says the charge would be felony battery.

“We’re reviewing some video from some local area stores to see if we can try and isolate that description with the four (4) occupants that are in it,” said Sheriff Greg Ewing.

Ewing hopes anyone with information will call Crime Stoppers at (812) 238-STOP.
