TINLEY PARK, Ill. -- A bet on Monday's Bears-Packers game has sacked a suburban Chicago man.

John Grant, 42, of Tinley Park is charged with felony possession of an electronic weapon after he tased his wife.

The two were in an ally when Grant used the taser twice on his wife's backside according to police reports.

Grant tells police the two had a bet on the Bears-Packers game and the winner could tase the loser.

Grant's wife said she did not consent to being tased, but police said cell phone video of the incident shows the woman laughing and showing consent.
