Bears fan tasers his wife, a Packers fan, following wager
Chicago Bears fans and Green Bay Packers fans generally don’t like one another. We’re guessing that isn’t the case with Packers fan John Grant and his wife, who happens to be a cheesehead. They just like to make friendly wagers that result in someone getting electrocuted.
According to The Daily Citizen, Grant was arrested early Tuesday morning after the Bears beat the Packers 27-20. His wife reportedly called police to report that Grant had used a stun gun on her three times. She showed the officers burn marks on her buttocks from where she had been shocked, which led to Grant’s arrest for the illegal use of an electric weapon.
Here’s the twisted part. Grant insisted he and his wife had made a wager on the game, and he Tasered her as a result of Chicago winning. After reviewing a series of text messages, police determined that Grant’s wife did indeed agree to the bet and consent to being Tasered if the Packers lost. She said, however, that she never expected him to actually do it.
Deadspin noted that Grant’s blood alcohol content was a whopping .137 while his wife’s was .155. It’s safe to say these NFL fans weren’t exactly thinking clearly. We’ve heard plenty of stories that involve people being Tasered, but this one is pretty shocking (see what I did there?). I don’t know what’s more baffling — that they agreed to the bet or that Grant actually followed through with it.
