ST. CLOUD, Fla. (AP) - A bicyclist was reportedly struck by an Osceola County deputy just minutes after the deputy warned him about riding in the dark without lights.

The deputy reported that he stopped Kelton Harris in St. Cloud early Saturday morning and told the rider to be careful. Harris then turned on a handheld flashlight and road off. As the deputy started to drive off, he reported that Harris was riding along the side of the road and then suddenly turned in front of the deputy's patrol car.

Harris was knocked unconscious but woke up a few minutes later.

It's wasn't clear if charges would be filed.
