John Grant, the suspect in question

We enjoy a good wager, and we don't mind a little danger. Heck, we've even played this game at a party before, so we're no stranger to a little jolt.

All that said, only bad things can happen when you combine a bigger jolt -- a stun gun, or taser if you will -- into the mix and combine it with sports wagering.

Also, if it happens in Wisconsin ...

Per the Beaver Dam Daily Citizen:

A 12:39 a.m. a Mayville Police officer responded to Dan’s King Pin, 31 N. Main St., to speak to a woman who reported that her husband had used a stun gun on her three times while at Sidelines Tap, 111 S. Main St.

The wife said that while the two were smoking cigarettes outside of Sidelines, John Grant, 42, had used the stun gun twice on her butt and once on her thigh. She said that she has burn marks on her butt although she did not request emergency medical treatment.

After the game the two walked back to the semi-truck that they call home and Grant was angry. He threw his wife’s dog out of the truck and would not let the woman in. At that time she walked back to Dan’s King Pin to use a telephone.

Grant said that the two had made a bet on the game as she is a Packers fan and he’s a Bears fan. If the Packers lost, she would be shocked with the stun gun.

In reviewing the woman’s text messages about the bet and a cell phone video, the officer determined that she did make the bet with her husband and that she did consent to having a stun gun being used on her. She told the officers that she didn’t think her husband would actually use the weapon on her.

Oh, Wisconsin. Don't ever change.
