(Newser) – A Florida man has won a $650,000 settlement for getting kicked in the face by a stripper, NBC Miami reports. The lawsuit charged that Michael Ireland suffers from permanent double vision after taking a high-heeled boot to the head while in a club. Ireland says the blow punctured his eye socket and broke a few bones in his face.

"When this case was first filed, many people criticized it simply because it occurred at a strip club," says his attorney. "But we feel the $650,000 settlement goes to show that this was a serious case with serious injuries." Read more at AOL News.
