Bears fan uses stun gun on his wife to settle football bet

Chicago Bears fan John Grant appeared in Dodge County Circuit Court on Tuesday for allegedly using an electric stun gun on his wife, a Green Bay Packers fan, to settle a bet the two made as a result of Monday Night Football.

The bet was rather simple: John said his wife agreed to allow him to use a stun gun on her if the Packers lost. As fate would have it, the Packers lost 27-20, and the rest is history.

However, things went awry went Nicole Grant called police immediately after her husband followed through with the bet and shocked her three times with the taser.

During questioning, the Illinois man told police that his wife consented to being shocked by the Taser as part of a bet.. Grant said his wife sent a text message to her sons saying that if the Packers lost to the Bears she would allow Grant to use the Taser on her. The man showed police the woman’s cell phone containing the text as well as a video in which she appears to be laughing as the Taser is being used on her, according to the complaint.

Nicole Grant told police she didn’t think her husband would actually use the Taser on her.

In all due respect, don't agree to a bet if you don't plan on keeping your end of the deal! Just kidding.

But seriously, Mr. Grant is now being charged with possession of an electric weapon, and could face a fine of $10,000 and up to six years in prison if convicted.

Moral of the story: Don't make football bets with your wife.
