Man uses stun gun on wife after she loses football bet

Posted: Updated:

(AP) - 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.
