MIAMI -- A man in Florida will get a $650,000 settlement, after he was kicked in the face by a stripper wearing a high-heeled boot.

Michael Ireland filed a suit after the 2008 incident at the Cheetah Club near West Palm Beach, saying he suffers permanent double vision.

Ireland claims the kick broke some bones in his face and punctured his eye socket.

The owner of the club claimed the dancer only kicked Ireland because she had been slapped first.

"We feel the $650,000 settlement goes to show that this was a serious case with serious injuries," Ireland's attorney said.
