A Chicago-area man has been arrested after allegedly Tasering his wife three times to settle a bet between the two over the outcome of the Monday night Bears-Packers game.
According to the Beaver Dam Daily Citizen, John Grant, 42, of Tinley Park, Ill., has been charged with the use of an electric weapon.
Grant, a Bears fan, told police the couple had made a bet over the Bears-Packers game that if the Bears won he could use his stun gun on her, NBC Chicago reports.
Grant and his wife, a Packers fan, had been smoking cigarettes outside a bar in Mayville, Wis., early Tuesday morning when he allegedly used the stun gun three times on his wife -- twice on her buttocks and the third time on her thigh, the Daily Citizen reports.
“It takes not only the Packer and Bear rivalry to a new level, it takes the spousal rivalry (to a new level),” Mayville Police Chief Christopher MacNeill told the Chicago Tribune of the incident.
If convicted on the charge, Grant could face up to six years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
