MAYVILLE, Wis. — An Illinois man is charged with a felony after allegedly using a stun gun on his wife as part of a bet on the Packers-Bears game.
John Grant, of Tinley Park, was charged Tuesday with possession of an electric weapon in Dodge County.
While driving through Mayville in their semi, the couple stopped at a bar to watch Monday's game, where the Packers lost 27-20.
According to a criminal complaint, Packers fan Nicole Grant allegedly bet Bears backer John Grant that he could use a stun gun on her for three seconds if Green Bay lost.
The 42-year-old allegedly used it three times on her. She called police around 12:40 a.m. Tuesday.
Court records say both had been drinking.
A message left Thursday for his attorney was not immediately returned.
