JUNEAU, Wis. — A Tinley Park man was fined $250 after allegedly using a stun gun on his wife after she lost a bet on the Nov. 4 Packers-Bears game.

John Grant, 42, pleaded no contest to disorderly conduct Thursday and was ordered to pay the fine and court costs.

The couple was driving through Mayville in their semi truck when they stopped at a bar to watch the game, which the Packers lost 27-20.

Nicole Grant bet her husband that he could use a stun gun on her for three seconds if Green Bay lost, according to prosecutors.

They said Grant used it three times on her, and she called police, telling officers she didn’t think her husband would actually use the weapon on her.
