John Grant, a 42-year-old Chicago Bears fan, and his wife Nicole, a Green Bay Packers backer, made a taser wager on the game at Lambeau Field. If the visiting Bears won, the couple agreed, John would be able to tase Nicole for three seconds.
While Nicole told cops that she had not agreed to the tasing, a cell phone video reviewed by officers showed that she was “standing still with her arms up and the male subject applies the Taser to her. In the video, Ms. Grant is seen laughing and it seemed apparent that Ms. Grant had consented.”
When asked if the tasing caused pain, Nicole told police, “Hell yeah it hurt.” She reported that while the electric device had “been used on the outside of her clothing…it caused burn marks on her buttocks.”
John was arrested for possession of an electric weapon charge, a felony count carrying a maximum six-year prison term (and a fine of up to $10,000).
John said that he bought “several Tasers at a truck stop in Virginia,” adding that he was unaware that it was illegal to possess the devices in Wisconsin without a permit.
