A Loxahatchee man who was injured after a stripper kicked him in the face with her high heel has reached a $650,000 Florida injury settlement with the Cheetah Palm Beach nightclub and dancer Sakeena “Suki” Shager. Michael Ireland was getting a lap dance in 2008 when the incident happened.
Ireland contends that while dancing, Suki poked him in the eye with the stiletto heel of her spiked shoe. The Palm Beach injury incident punctured his eye socket and broke the bones around his nose and eye. Ireland reportedly has had to undergo several surgeries but will continue to have double vision for life. Gather.com reports that the Cheetah Club opted to settle rather than going to court because it was concerned that a jury would order it to pay Ireland a larger amount.
