A rule of thumb when making wagers with someone who owns a stun gun: if the bet involves them using the stun gun, they’re almost certainly going to follow through with it if they win. And such is the moral of this story of a Packers fan wife and a Bears fan husband, other than the obvious “don’t marry fans of division rivals”.
The wife said that while the two were smoking cigarettes outside of Sidelines, Grant had used the stun gun twice on her butt and once on her thigh. She said that she has burn marks on her butt although she did not request emergency medical treatment.
Grant said that the two had made a bet on the game as she is a Packers fan and he’s a Bears fan. If the Packers lost, she would be shocked with the stun gun.
In reviewing the woman’s text messages about the bet and a cellphone video, the officer determined that she did make the bet with her husband and that she did consent to having a stun gun being used on her. She told the officers that she didn’t think her husband would actually use the weapon on her.
Unfortunately for the husband, though the wife is unable to press assault charges, he still got dinged with illegal possession and discharge of an electric weapon, which can result in up to $10,000 in fines and up to six years in prison.
