Man tasers wife after winning friendly redneck football wager


At a Wisconsin bar Monday night, Chicago Bears fan John Grant apparently made a bet with his wife Nicole, a Green Bay Packers fan that the winner gets to use a stun gun on the loser.

As we all know, the Bears were victorious and John set to work on cashing in his winnings. After the deed was done, Nicole called police from a bowling alley next door to the bar to report that he tasered her three times, according to

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.

John Grant told police that he bought more than one stun gun in Virginia, but didn’t realize that they’re illegal to possess in Wisconsin. Both husband and wife were drunk, the report says.

In the end John was cuffed for possession of an electric weapon, and could face a fine of $10,000 and up to six years in prison if convicted.
