Packers-Bears stun gun bet

JUNEAU, Wis. (AP) -- A suburban Chicago man was fined $250 after allegedly using a stun gun on his wife after she lost a bet on a Packers-Bears game.

Forty-two-year-old John Grant of Tinley Park, Ill., pleaded no contest to disorderly conduct in a Wisconsin court on Thursday.

The Daily Citizen (http://bit.ly/1dtzZ57 ) reports Judge Steven Bauer ordered the fine plus court costs.

The couple was driving through Mayville when they stopped at a bar to watch the Nov. 4 game. The Bears won 27-20.

According to the complaint, Nicole Grant said her husband could use a stun gun on her for three seconds if Green Bay lost.

John Grant allegedly used it three times, and she called police. She told officers she didn't think her husband would actually use the weapon on her.
