Bears Fan Fined for Using Stun Gun on Packers Fan Wife

    A south suburban Chicago Bears fan was fined $250 after he was found guilty of using a stun gun on his wife, a Green Bay Packers fan, following a bet.

    John M. Grant, 42, pleaded no contest last Thursday to disorderly conduct and was ordered to pay the fine plus court costs, totaling $568, according to the Beaver Dam Daily Citizen.

    Grant, of Tinley Park, and his wife, watched the Bears beat the Packers on Nov. 4 at Sidelines Tap in Mayville, Wis., where he told police he and his wife made a bet that he could use a Taser on her if the Bears won, according to a criminal complaint filed in Dodge County, Wis.

    Grant's wife claims her husband used the Taser “two times on her buttocks” while the two were in an alley smoking cigarettes outside of the bar.

    "Hell ya it hurt," she said, according to police.

    The report states the wife claims she did not give consent for anyone to use a Taser, but cell phone footage of the incident shows her "laughing and it seemed apparent that Ms. Grant had consented," the arresting officer wrote in the complaint.

    Grant was charged with felony possession of an electronic weapon.
