JENSEN BEACH, Fla., April 22 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said a man told them he was struck in a bookstore parking lot for making a comment about "codpieces" to a testicle photographer.

The Martin County Sheriff's Office said a man told deputies he overheard two men talking in the Jensen Beach Barnes & Noble parking lot about one of the men's penchant for taking photographs of testicles, TCPalm.com reported Friday.

The man said he made a comment about "codpieces," leading the speaker to punch him in the face.

"(The testicle photographer) told (the codpiece commenter) that he felt he had been made fun of when (the codpiece commenter) interjected with a comment concerning 'codpieces, i.e. external jocks' while overhearing a conversation between (the testicle photographer) and another male concerning (the testicle photographer's) penchant for taking pictures of testicles," the report said.

Two people reported witnessing the incident. No charges have been filed in the case.
